Emojipedia looked at 50,000 tweets that included at least one of 12 emojis people use when they're sick.  Then they ranked them to find the top emojis we associate with the coronavirus.



They're not the most common emojis being used.  That's still the crying-laughing emoji, because it's always the most-popular.



These are the ones most strongly linked to the coronavirus.  Meaning, if you're using them right now, that's probably what you're talking about.  Here are top five:



1.  The green "microbe" emoji that looks like a germ.  42% of people who used it were talking about the coronavirus.



2.  The yellow face emoji that's wearing a medical mask, 36%.



3.  The "nauseous" emoji that's all-green and looks like it's about to puke, 5%.



4.  The sneezing emoji, 5%.



5.  The bar of soap emoji, 4%.  A few more that are strongly associated with the virus right now are the ambulance emoji . . . the bandaged head emoji . . . and the blood-filled syringe emoji.
