The illustration is designed to resemble a screenshot of a Google search page. “How to fight coronavirus?” reads the text written in the search bar. Below the icons, usually visible on the webpage, is a function many may be familiar with. It is Google’s ‘did you mean’ function, which suggests alternative keywords after scanning user queries for spelling and grammar errors.

Meme makers often utilize this trend for comedic purposes by writing a funny alternative to the word or phrase written in the search bar next to the sentence: ‘did you mean’. In this scenario, “Staying indoors,” is written post the phrase and suggests that the best way to restrict the spread of Covid-19 is to stay indoors. The hashtag #StayHomeStaySafe is also visible in the snapshot.
