As we all have entered into the last phase of the lockdown (hopefully), we are still trying to remain sane during this time. While staying home for almost two months now, each one of us is trying our best to entertain ourselves with whatever we can. Health workers are trying their best to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus while the rest of the world is just finding new and creative ways to spend their downtime. Since some people seem to have run out of shows to binge, skills to learn, and chores to do, we have compiled a list of the weirdest things we’ve seen during coronavirus pandemic. So let’s check out this list of the most absurd things that have happened because of the coronavirus.
So, Here Is A List Of The Weirdest Things We’ve Seen During Coronavirus Pandemic
