Loads of folks have been struck down with the rona, including ya bois The Inspired Unemployed.

The lads have become the Omicron spokespeople that we didn’t know we needed and they’ve been documenting their COVID journey on Instagram.

“Day 4 of Omicron,” they wrote in their first IG Story announcing they’d been hit with the new variant.

When it was finally time for rest, the bois dove into bed with their face masks on (???) and wrote, “Lights out at the clinic, wish us luck.”

I’m no medical professional, but I feel like sleeping with your mask on is a big no-no. But again, what do I know?
