The coronavirus has started a new trend called "caremongering". It started with acts of kindness in Canada. It is not known if the word will stay around long enough to get in future dictionaries. "Caremongering" started after Canadians found new ways to help vulnerable people. Social media is spreading the concept across Canada. Within 72 hours of the word trending, 35 Facebook groups had more than 30,000 members.

A caremongering group founder spoke about the name. She said: "We wanted to...get people to connect on a positive level, to connect with each other." She added: "Caremongering has spread the opposite of panic in people, brought out community and [friendship], and allowed us to tackle the needs of those who are at risk." She said: "This virtual community...is really showing people there is still hope for humanity. We haven't lost our hope."
