Spare a thought for the poor satirists. Truly they are the real victims of the cruel hand fate has played us.
Two examples of stories I've seen today, which if you came across them under normal circumstances, you would check the date of the article; expecting it to be 1 April.
I don't recall seeing either of these in the main coronavirus thread; and they deserve a thread of their own alongside any other egregious examples spotted in the wild.
1) The Iranian military have announced the invention of a device which can detect coronavirus at a range of up to 100 metres, with 80% accuracy. It looks like tho old golfball detector scam has had new life breathed into it https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/04/17/iran_coronavirus_detector/
2) Richard Branson is going to put up Necker Island as collateral against a bailout loan from the government. This was actually an April Fool's story from Guido Fawkes until someone from Virgin's PR dept saw it and thought, "What a good idea!" https://order-order.com/2020/04/20/branson-pledges-necker-island-bailout-collateral/

There appears to be a correlation between unicorn type hair colours and bonkerness. I thought a thread to capture this would be helpful.

The death of a homeless former soldier has sparked outrage among veterans charities who say more must be done to look after ex-servicemen.
Ex-squaddie Darren Greenfield, 47, who fell on hard times after leaving the Army, died on the streets of Edinburgh just a week before Christmas.
He was a regular face in the Scottish capital as he often spent time sitting on the steps of Waverley train station.
The Who Dares Cares charity said: 'It is a sign of the times that a soldier is left to die on our streets. It is an utter outrage.'
Mr Greenfield had served with the Royal Tank Regiment but fell on tough times after he left the Army.
The news of his death sparked outrage among campaigners who are calling for more to be done to help veterans adapt to civilian life.
Military charities say at least 13,000 former soldiers are homeless – a record high.
I don't think I need to draw parallels to Grenfell
