German covid coinages are a pandemic kuddelmuddel!

coronamüde: Tired of covid

Coronafrisur: covid hairstyle

Abstandsbier: distance-beer

@pluralistic is Coronaparty just a german term or also used elsewhere to describe illegal parties/gatherings of people that don't care about corona?

@davidak @pluralistic My friends and I refer to them as corona or covid parties in English. I am pretty sure we got this from French media. There was a party in my building and a Frecnh neighbor referred to it as a Covid fiesta which I quite liked.
