"We all have Schroedinger's Virus now.

Because we cannot get tested, we can't know whether we have the virus or not.

We have to act as if we have the virus so that we don't spread it to others.

We have to act as if we've never had the virus, because if we didn't have it, we're not immune.

Therefore, we both have and don't have the virus. Thus, Schroedinger's Virus.

If you don't understand this joke, you're never allowed to talk about science again."
