Coronavirus song


I just suddenly had the idea to write a coronavirus song this afternoon after following up a lot on coronavirus information and news since January 2020. The lyrics give a very brief review of the coronavirus situation from novel to pandemic to endemic over the past year. It even contains meaningful rhymes. Then I put links to some old articles that are mostly news or technical.

♫  (To the tune of Oh My Darling, Clementine)

Coronavirus, coronavirus, has club-shaped spike proteins
Did PCR test; does thorax CT
show ground-glass opacity?

Coronavirus, novel virus, 2019-nCoV
Got a new name: SARS-CoV-2
Causing more than just a flu?

Coronavirus, pandemic virus, Covid-19 cases increase
Dreadful stories, lock down the city
Or wait for herd immunity?

Coronavirus, endemic virus, oh alas, here forever
Took the vaccine: Moderna, Pfizer
Are we still tracing together?
