The Lyrics

A song about the cautionary advice issued to citizens worried or knowing that they are suffering from a contagious disease, such as coronavirus. To be in quarantine means to deliberately avoid close physical contact with other people, including close relatives. A period of quarantine might justifiably end after recovery from such an infection.
When it began
Symptoms were weak and minor,
But now I know they’re growing strong.
Lovely hotel,
Best in the east of China,
Who’d have believed things could go wrong?

Hands, touchin’ hands,
Reachin’ out,
Touchin’ me,
Touchin’ you!

Deep quarantine,
The chef has disappeared for good.
Deep quarantine,
A restricted choice of food.
But now I

Look at these walls,
Makin’ us feel so lonely,
For medical checks we have to queue.
And when I hurt
Noticing teams of soldiers,
Feeling I’m trapped in a human zoo.

Harm, fearing harm,
Breathin’ out,
Touchin’ me,
Touchin’ you!

Deep quarantine,
The vaccine lab’s work through the night.
Clinics are clean,
Tourists feel too weak to fight.
I’m so low.

Deep quarantine,
Prospects seldom seemed so bleak.
I’ve never seen
An epidemic reach its peak.
Deep quarantine.
Lab's, mentioned in the last verse, is an abbreviation of laboratories. Such facilities are obtaining additional funds for research given the scale of the 2020 coronavirus epidemic and the urgent need to reduce mortality prompted by its geographic spread.
