People Are Crocheting Oddly Adorable Coronavirus Plushies To Fight Boredom At Home

One of the best ways to stop the spread of viruses is to practice social distancing and to simply stay home when you're sick.

There's only so much Netflix and Disney+ you can watch before you start feeling antsy. Needlework is a great activity to chill, relax, and stay occupied and entertained.

Naturally, artists are crocheting their own COVID-19 plushies, and they're oddly cute.

"I crocheted a coronavirus for my infectious diseases class!," Redditor lavenderstudies wrote.

People appreciate the wholesome sense of humour in what can be a terrifying time. "You have a great sense of humor and I think that’s needed when the world is living in fear of something like that," a Redditor replied.

This Redditor made a free-hand COVID-19 keychain of sorts.

Some people are even selling their own.
