Test Your Knowledge of COVID-19

Many of us have sought distractions from the rising fears and frustrations of the pandemic. Why do you think it’s nearly impossible to buy a jigsaw puzzle now?  They are all on back order as the supply cannot meet the demand.  Board games are also more popular than ever.  Even I've competed in a few rounds of Boggle.  And binge-watching various television series has become a welcome oasis from the surrounding chaos.


Jigsaw Puzzles - Endangered Species


As a medical professional and an ordinary person, I am well aware of the health and economic horrors that the virus has wrought.  Yes, the upcoming vaccines represent a monumental scientific triumph, but there will be many dark months before they are widely available.

In this posting, permit me to offer readers a lighter look at COVID-19 to provide a few minutes of deserved distraction.

Here’s a COVID-19 quiz to test how current and accurate your knowledge is.

 

True or False

Anthony Fauci, MD is obsessed with masks.  He really needs to lighten up.

Deborah Birx’s scarves are soaked in bleach to repel coronavirus which is how she has escaped infection..

Donald Trump, a true statesman, attacked the pandemic without any political considerations.

Scientists predict a decline in viral infections in northern U.S. states in the next 2 months as the snowbird virus hates the cold.

Just like the ‘flu shot’, it is possible that the upcoming vaccines can actually cause COVID-19.

 

Choose the BEST answer.

Which of the following is the most effective method for avoiding coronavirus infection?


Using Lysol as a food additive.

Avoiding Chinese food.

Wearing a mask that fits snugly over your mouth and nostrils.

Joining an aerobics class since the vigorous kinetic activity will shake off any virus that lands on you.

Leaving the bar by 10:00 sharp which is an hour before the virus awakens.

 

 Our best hope for defeating this virus is:


President Trump reversing the election and continuing his leadership for another 4 years.

Having bleach brownies with a Clorox chaser every evening. 

Prohibiting masks which many people say might be making the pandemic worse.

President-elect Joe Biden.

Having friends and family from near and far come together during the upcoming holidays. The virus will respect our resolve and then fade away.

I hope that you performed well on this academic challenge.  Want some extra credit?  Wear a mask and keep a proper distance between you and others and I’m prepared to raise your score by a full letter grade.
