Memes and their history are always fun to talk about. But let’s be serious for a moment. Meetissai’s sculpture of the cat wearing the mask raises the very important and pertinent question of the coronavirus which, at the time of writing, is still spreading. (If you’re reading this in the future, we sincerely hope everything worked out in the end!)

According to the latest news, the coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 1,000 people, with over 42k confirmed infections across the globe, mostly in China. The illness has affected 28 territories across the globe. However, the epicenter of the virus, Wuhan, is locked down and the international community is taking steps to curb the spread as much as possible.

Reuters spoke with Zhong Nanshan, one of the leading respiratory experts in China, about the situation. According to Zhong, the virus was hitting its peak in China in February. They were optimistic that the outbreak might be over by April.

If that’s the case, the paranoia regarding the virus should subside and we won’t be seeing any more cats wearing face masks.
