“You want to hear a coronavirus joke? You probably won’t get it”

The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak led to this “joke”:

“You want to hear a coronavirus joke? You probably won’t get it.”

“Get it” refers to both the joke and the disease. Similar jokes were told about Ebola and Social Security.

“Want to hear a joke about Coronavirus?....You probably won’t get it” was posted on Twitter by jodie in January 22, 2020. “Me: Hey did you hear the joke about novel coronavirus? Them: No. Me: Eh. You probably won’t get it. Sorry. Just re-hashing an old ebola joke” was posted on Twitter by VegasDawg on January 26, 2020.

The joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on March 11, 2020, but removed by moderators.


Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak is an ongoing global outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China on 1 December 2019, spreading to every province-level administrative division of the country by 29 January 2020. On 30 January, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following an increase in the number of cases outside China.
