Here’s the “tea” on the latest corona lingo in 2020

If you see your teenager text CD9 just as you walk in the room during iso, it's a Code 9 Parent Alert!


A neologism is a newly coined phrase driven by popular culture on the fringe of mainstream use. Think back to meme, factoid, geek etc.


SOCIAL MEDIA

Infodemic - Global switching from traditional media sources to social media at unprecedented speeds


Cancel culture - The practice of cancelling support for public figures to shame them


(UN) SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

Virtue signalling - Empty acts of public commitment during a crisis aka Slacktivism


Woke - Culturally in touch and enlightened regarding current societal issues especially racism


Zoombombing – Replaced photobombing!


Super-spreader - An corona asymptomatic person unwittingly spreading the virus to large numbers of unsuspecting people.


NEXT GENERATION

Coronials – kids born after 1 January 2021


Quaranteens - homeschooled kids


Gen C - any teen forced to spend too much time with Mum and Dad WFH … eeooww!


DRINKS

Quarantini - martini in isolation


Quarantipple - the drink before the quarantini


Hydroxychloroquine – Presidential cocktail


NO WORDS

Covidiot - anti-maskers who think the world is flat

My fave is covidiot aka a whackjob.
