Seen any amusing Covid t shirts? I haven’t seen any yet. What would you have on yours?

Hypothetically, if a Prime Minister, say, is at death's door do they prepare the country like a relative might be prepared? I.e. told the truth but gently. Or do they say everything is fine right until the very end while hoping for the best?

Coincidentally, the pandemic is predicted to peak during Passover. What if the Jews in Egypt were actually the first to realize the benefits of 'shelter in place' during a pandemic?
