The rise of the 2019 Novel Corona Virus (Covid-19) has caused a worldwide lockdown in preventing the surge of cases of the virus. The modern lockdown includes isolation at homes, travel restrictions, and termination of all public events. According to NCBI, Covid-19 is a disease similar to pneumonia cases that began to emerge in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China in December 2019. The studies revealed that the cases that emerged were a new type of coronavirus that was not previously described. The source of this virus is thought to be the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan, China. It was understood in time that the virus, which is transmitted from animal to human, can spread from human to human.
Despite the negative effect that the Covid-19 has brought to us, it has also a positive impact on us, especially on our health. Now we are in a new normal where it can be a stepping stone to a new future. According to Travel.Earth.com, Recent instances of everyday people making the best of unfortunate situations have brought us some new quarantine trends on social media. Like all trends, these quarantine trends on social media are easy and replicable. But what sets them apart is that they are easily achievable at home, extremely shareable online, and highly participatory.
The following are the viral trends during a lockdown:
1. Dalgona Coffee
The viral trend Dalgona coffee emerged during the first few months of the pandemic, when consumers were looking for new ways to reproduce food service experiences at home. The drink, named after the Korean sugar candy ‘Dalgona’ popular in the 70s and 80s, is made by whipping equal portions of instant coffee with sugar and hot water into a froth before pouring over milk.
2. TikTok Videos
TikTok has since become a viral trend and media sensation. Publications all over the internet are writing about how people are connecting over the platform.

Virtual conference offer planners and marketers a way to connect with a broader audience, often leading to higher registration numbers than in-person events as travel and cost are no longer burdens attendees must bear. According to wired.co.uk, Zoom is the pandemic’s success story. As lockdowns around the world closed offices and made working from home compulsory for vast sections of the working population, businesses and individuals grasped for a way to carry on at a distance.
