We've all been bombarded with news of the COVID-19 outbreak and how quickly it's spreading. Therefore, many of us are self-isolating or practicing social distancing to try and slow the whole thing down.

And it seems some people have been coming up with rather creative ways to keep themselves occupied - including, it appears, turning "Bohemian Rhapsody" into a song about coronavirus.

Yep, really. Keep scrolling to see the ingenious lyrics for yourself, and of course, see the newly posted cover of the track.

 

Social Distancing: What is it?

You've probably heard this term being thrown about these past few weeks but what is the true meaning behind it?

It is the act of limiting social interaction.

This includes reducing how often we go out to visit our friends, other family members, how often we attend events and gatherings.

Is it effective?

How do I stress this so that the world can understand? It is very important that we control and limit our social interaction as it will prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. If you don't come into contact with people as often, you can't pass on the germs.

How can we do this effectively?

In order to carry out social distancing in an effective manner, we all need to first understand how serious this global pandemic has become. Why? Because some people don't realize the severity of this virus, ain't that right, Vanessa Hudgens and co.?

It's about protecting the more vulnerable people in our society.

There are many factors that make some people more susceptible to falling victim to the disease and it typically involves their health or their age.

So if you're young, healthy and contract the virus, you've got a good chance of surviving...

But it's not about you. It's about everyone else. That's why social distancing is important, in order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

And recently, people have been sharing photos about how they are going about this online...

I know things seem hopeless right now, but these photos are so heartwarming that your faith in our communities will be restored.

1. Quick Catch-Up.

This user's mom sent her a photograph of how she and her neighbors are socializing.

I wonder what the topic of discussion will be...

I hope they all talk about how nice it is to be spending more quality time with their wives and children.

3. Beer Night: Mom version.

These moms are doing the same thing but at an acceptable distance.

4. Happy Hour.

Social distancing doesn't mean completely blocking out the outside world, remember that.

5. Neighborhood Happy Hour.

I need to be part of this!

6. Social Distancing Hour.

There are many opportunities to spend time with the neighborhood.

7. Bestie Hour.

You can still share some quality time with your friends... But from 2 meters away.

We stan these active queens.

9. Keep Apart.

Staying the appropriate distance doesn't mean conversations have been canceled.

10. Aerobics Class.

It can be easy to forget, but exercising during these difficult times is important to maintain your health. This neighborhood class is doing it right!

If this doesn't make you want to throw your own neighborhood dance party, then I don't know what will.

I want to be part of this!

13. Entertainment.

Or you could dress up like a dinosaur and run down your street to entertain your neighbors. Hey, it works!

Other people have been coming with some rather unusual ways of keeping themselves occupied.

Including turning "Bohemian Rhapsody" into a song about Coronavirus.

Yep, this really did happen.

A man has gone viral on Twitter after he posted a unique rendition of the iconic Queen song.

The man started out his Twitter thread by saying: "I've lost my mind."

Sounds like a promising start...

He then went on to write out the entire song but swapping out the lyrics for COVID-19 themed lines.

This must have taken quite some time given the fact that "Bohemian Rhapsody" isn't exactly a short song.

There's definitely a serious message behind the lyrics.

Like: wash your hands and stop going out and infecting people... that kind of thing.

We definitely sense a VMA award on the horizon...

This is quite possibly one of the best things we've seen.

He continues:

A lyrical masterpiece.

Of course, it didn't take people long to start posting covers of the track.
