In mid-December, the outbreak of a new virus was detected in Wuhan, China. The virus — a new coronavirus and a cousin of SARS — has killed at least 9 people, sickened more than 440, and has just been detected for the first time in the United States.

The people of China, understandably, are coping via memes.

Here are the best memes from across the internet, as Chinese and English speakers come together to say “RIP 2020, it was a good run.”

1. “How to text your friends in Wuhan”

2. Can’t be too safe

3. What we all thought at first

4. Symptoms may include paranoia

5. When the store runs out of masks

6. Or, share with a friend

7. How to flake on plans

8. “Come out and play”

9. This season’s essentials

10. When the coronavirus hits at Chinese New Year
