The topic that has been shaking the entire planet earth right now is the outbreak of Corona virus [COVID-19], which reached India in January this year and has since unfortunately affected over 43 people. Given India's population of 1.38 billion, the number may seem less but an epidemic in such a vast population is any day a looming threat.
While the world has found its own way of dealing with corona, the Tamil population especially the movie enthusiasts have over the last 3 months filled social media with light-hearted references and memes and more recently they have been focussed on spreading awareness about the virus and its dos and don'ts.
Tamil comedian Vadivelu, who is known to the rest of the world as 'Contractor Nesamani' is particularly being used along with his meme worthy content, to spread the 'corona virus awareness'. Here are some examples of the same:

Other Kollywood references too have made it to the 'Corona Virus' topic and these seem to be more 'just for laughs'.
