Simply 23 coronavirus tweets to help take the edge off for a moment or two
Come back 2019, all is forgiven. As the country – and the world – tries to get to grips with coronavirus and what is going to happen over the next few weeks and months, these tweets should help take the edge off, just for a bit.
Day 1: I have stocked up on enough non-perishable food and supplies to last me for months, maybe years, so that I can remain in isolation for as long as it takes to see out this pandemic

I’ve woken up feeling achy and not at my best every day for eleven years since having children, so spotting symptoms is not that straightforward.

Tips for those of you about to start working from home…
1) Wanking. Get to love it.
2) lunch. It’s a big thing. Your entire day will hinge around this.
3) The Postman. They will appear when you are wanking.
4) Radio on ok. TV on bad.
