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?
via: Getty ImagesYou'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.
via: Getty ImagesThis includes reducing how often we go out to visit our friends, other family members, how often we attend events and gatherings.
Is it effective?
via: Getty ImagesHow 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?
via: Getty ImagesIn 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.
via: Getty ImagesThere 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...

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

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.
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.
via: TwitterThis 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.
via: TwitterLike: wash your hands and stop going out and infecting people... that kind of thing.
We definitely sense a VMA award on the horizon...
via: TwitterThis is quite possibly one of the best things we've seen.
via: TwitterA lyrical masterpiece.
Of course, it didn't take people long to start posting covers of the track.
