Labeling the Pandemic

11 months have passed since the pandemic shut down the world and changed our lives forever. We cleared out the toilet paper aisle. We cleared out the Lysol aisle. We mass-produced face masks. We started working from home. We limited our contact with our friends and family to be safe.

With social gatherings limited and most of us at home, we had to get creative. So we made Tik Toks, we watched Tiger King and Love is Blind on Netflix, and we made banana bread and protested against police brutality in the summer. We will forever refer to this moment in history. The story we will tell our children will have so many side stories.

Here are a couple words people said to describe that moment in 2020:

  1. COVID-19
  2. Coronavirus
  3. Covid
  4. Pandemic
  5. The ‘Rona
  6. Pandemonium
  7. These Corona Streets (my own invention)
  8. The Panoramic
