U.S.—In a powerful show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, COVID-19 has vowed not to infect anyone protesting inequality.
The official COVID-19 account tweeted out, "In solidarity with those protesting inequality, I hereby vow not to infect anyone at BLM rallies."
"We need to take a moment to pause and hear what these people are saying," the virus said in a statement. "All infectious activities will be put on hiatus until Republicans start protesting lockdowns or second amendment issues -- then we will resume."
"It wouldn't be fair for us to continue business as usual when liberals want to protest."
The virus vowed to stay put in infected individuals, lying dormant until the pandemic became convenient for the media to cover once again.
It also posted a black square on its Instagram account.
