The Week contest: Pandemic word

This week's question: Danes have created a lexicon of new pandemic-inspired words, including albuehilsen, or elbow greeting, coronakilos, or weight gained during lockdown, and bodegavirolog, an unqualified bigmouth who now considers himself an expert in virology. Please come up with a new English compound word to describe one aspect of life in the era of COVID-19.
