“What’s the difference between COVID-19 and Romeo & Juliet?"/"Coronavirus & Verona Crisis.”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemi shouldn’t be confused with Romeo and Juliet (a Verona crisis), but there are jokes. “You’ve heard a lot about corona virus, get ready to learn about a Verona crisis!” was posted on Twitter by The Bud Lite Penguin’s distant step-father on February 29, 2020.

A riddle was posted on Twitter by Julian Lee on March 14, 2020:

Q: What’s the difference between Covid 19 and Romeo & Juliet?
A: One’s a corona virus and the other is a Verona crisis.



Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Wikipedia: Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families.
