- The government ordered a community quarantine in Metro Manila to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Despite the urgency and seriousness of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in the country, it’s not a surprise that Filipinos still found a way to lighten up the mood even by just a little bit.
Netizens have come up with different memes and jokes to express their feelings regarding the Community Quarantine that President Rodrigo Duterte announced on March 12 during his press conference.
One of the things being compared with the situation is the viral Korean drama, Crash Landing on You where the main characters are a South Korean socialite and a North Korean soldier.

Classes and graduation rites have also been suspended and canceled because of COVID-19. Some classes have opted to hold their sessions online but what about the commencement ceremonies?
