Millennials React to Coronavirus
By Deyanira on March 11, 2020
As we know, Coronavirus has greatly affected our society. We have seen death rates increasing around the world and everyday the panic grows more.
We also know, that with every serious situation come great memes and tweets. I was interested to see how younger generations were feeling about the Coronavirus and found that some of them are genuinely concerned with the fact that certain schools are closing while others remain open.

A large amount of San Francisco State University students have tweeted about the campus closing down. Apparently, in-person classes are cancelled until after Spring Break. While this is great to avoid any further spread of the virus, the dorms are being evacuated. From this tweet we see that students are not too happy about that!

Others are concerned with how their favorite celebrities are doing as many of them have been MIA.
And some are ready to take advantage of the cheap flights!

We hope this virus is controlled soon and that everything goes back to normal. For now, remember to wash your hands and avoid contact with people displaying flu like symptoms!
