We are dealing with a pandemic. With the start of this New Year and a new decade, things seemed to keep getting worse. The outbreak of the coronavirus has forced people to stay indoors in a hope to contain the spread as there is no vaccination for the virus yet. Now, we entered the sixth month of this year, and the number of cases has increased rapidly across the globe. As we continue to battle the pandemic, World Health Organisation (WHO) have confirmed a second Ebola outbreak in Congo, Central Africa. The moment the news hit online, people took to Twitter to express how this year continues to disappoint them. The netizens are making Ebola virus funny memes and jokes, commenting 2020 is going bad to worse, in the most hilarious manner.

It is hard to believe 2020 is nearing its halfway point. The past six months have included what feels like an eternity of global events. The most and only light-hearted way to take stock everything that we are experiencing in 2020 would be through memes. They have given our daily assault of real-time, some much-needed moments of laughter in this challenging time. We desperately hope that Congo overcomes the Ebola virus soon and so the coronavirus that has created havoc across the globe.
