“The coronavirus? I’m not shaking hands because people are out of toilet paper”

The 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak resulted in many people not shaking hands; the coronavirus also resulted in toilet paper shortages. A joke was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on March 8, 2020:
 
“Some people aren’t shaking hands because of the Coronavirus. I’m not shaking hands because everyone is out of toilet paper.”
   
The joke has been printed on many images.
 
     
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.

If people run out of toilet paper and don’t wash their hands, they’ll unexpectedly spread disease.
To stay safe, always confirm if someone has plenty toilet paper before shaking hands.
