People around the world continue to face lockdowns to slow the spread of COVID-19, and many are coming up with parodies of famous hits to suit the current times. From Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody to Do Re Mi from The Sound of Music, multiple hits have been remade to speak about social distancing, lockdowns, hygiene and the novel coronavirus.
Here are some of the best from around the world:
