The coronavirus pandemic is still working its way around the world but loads of countries are loosening lockdown regulations, so we’re stuck in a weird and confusing situation (we blame 2020). In times like these, a dose of good humor is great for recharging your batteries—laughter helps us see the positives in tough situations like the one we’re in now.

We want to keep your spirits up and to boost your mood this week, so Bored Panda has collected the freshest and funniest coronavirus jokes. Scroll down, upvote your faves, and let us know in the comments which jokes you loved the most and why. We’re huge fans of the corona jokes that people made during the quarantine, so be sure to check our previous posts here, here, and here. Now that’s a lot of jokes!

There are 3 camps of people when you ask whether it’s okay to make coronavirus jokes. There are those who think that comedy is incredibly important during difficult times. There are those who think that we shouldn’t joke about sensitive topics. Lastly, there are those in the middle who believe that humor has a place during the pandemic but that we shouldn’t overstep our bounds. But what do comedy professionals and experts have to say about this? Scroll down for Bored Panda's interview with comedy writer and comedian Ariane Sherine.

"I think it’s essential to joke about coronavirus because humor is a release mechanism to help us cope during dark times," Ariane told Bored Panda.

"Shared humor also helps us bond with one another. Lockdown would be very gloomy indeed if we couldn’t laugh about our predicament!" she added.

Ariane also told us that her go-to funny movie during the lockdown is 13 Going on 30 (released in 2004 and starring Jennifer Garner). "It’s really heartwarming and the Thriller scene is hilarious. It always lifts my spirits when I’m feeling low," the comedy writer said.

Meanwhile, according to Dr. Peter McGraw who heads the University of Colorado Boulder’s Humor Research Lab, if we’re constantly plugged into the newsfeed and frantically search for the latest breaking news about the virus, this just increases the scariness of the pandemic.

“A bit of comedy—whether it be through your Instagram feed, through a Netflix comedy special, or calling up your friend who's pretty good at making jokes in the face of tragedy—is not only a good way to distract yourself from what's going on, but it's also a good way to delight yourself,” Dr. McGraw said. So we shouldn’t feel guilty for laughing. After all, the alternative is to be in a constant state of low-key panic. And that’s not helping anybody: not your family, not your friends, and least of all you.

McGraw stressed that social media “is a mess” during the lockdown, so it’s best to unplug and unwind. Preferably, with a bunch of funny movies, comedy stand-up shows, and books that make you chuckle. “Take a little bit of a break. You certainly deserve it."

I feel a bit ashamed of this... I am a Christian but sometimes Christians try to do unimaginable things... yes we believe in miracles and all that but we believe in hospitals and medical stuff too. The Christians that think that they can pray a whole pandemic away are a little crazy and I'm sad that that's the only version of a Christian the world is seeing right now. At least at my church we pray for our doctors and essential worker's safety and things like that. You can believe what you want about religion of course, but I just wish that people could stop judging and let us do our own thing...ik I might get hate from this but please know that I'm on ur side too.

God is real, he is very real. But he's not just gonna make a miracle happen with a snap of his finger. I mean i'm sure he could, but thats not how he is. He wants us to learn and grow from an experience like this. And not to mention the Coronavirus was made by the government and they hid the obvious right under our noses. God can't decide what human beings do, he only hopes that they do the right thing.

God is real, and i believe he is very disappointed in all those fakes and liars. You atheists may ask, how do you know God is real, you can't see Him, so he must be fake? I will answer by saying, how do you know your brain is real? You can't see if can you? So how do you know for sure that your brain is real? You don't, but you believe your brain is real. Same thing with God, we can't see Him, but we believe He is real. The only way to feel His presence, is if you want to feel His presence in the first place. The only way to know God, is if you want to know Him in the first place. To know Him and be in His presence, you must want to. Have a lovely rest of your day/night and may God bless you.

Maybe because they aren't magic genies. God determines who is healed. Pastors can't just go around healing everyone THEY think should get healed. Also, yes some televangelists are phonies who don't have the love of God in them, only the love of money. But others, genuine disciples of Jesus, don't want to disobey the CDC recommendations to social distance any more than you do. In fact the Bible says that we should obey government leaders. As long as we put our obedience to God first.
