The Brief: As we approach one year of the Coronavirus pandemic, people are sharing memes about this milestone, expressing a range of emotions.


On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared that COVID-19 was a pandemic. One year later, people are reflecting and sharing memes about this bleak milestone.

A Jason Sudeikis Golden Globes meme about people who aren’t taking the pandemic seriously:

People are comparing March 2020 with March 2021, noting how much and how little has changed.

While a pandemic anniversary is a much less fun event than, say, a wedding anniversary, people are finding ways to observe this pandemaversary or “coronaversary.”


Some people are expressing nostalgia for early quarantine – the simpler days of Dalgona coffee, Tiger King, and thinking life would soon “go back to normal.”
