50 Virus Puns & Quarantine Puns to Ride Out the Pandemic

I love writing puns. Normally I write travel puns and jokes to celebrate what’s fun (and funny) about travel. But today is a pretty dark day as country after country declares states of emergency. And so, I thought a little dark humor might be in order. Here are some coronavirus puns, virus puns, and plague puns to laugh a little in these weird times.


FYI – These cover a lot of different viruses (mumps, zika, etc) not just the coronavirus. So if you plan on using one on Facebook or as an Instagram caption, feel free, just make sure it applies to the particular virus in question.
