As if life wasn't bad enough...

U2 frontman Bono has shared a new song dedicated to those affected by coronavirus.

The song appeared online as St. Patrick's Day drew to a close, with all traditional public displays being shut down to prohibit the spread of coronavirus.

Prompted to pick up his guitar, Bono has shared a brand new song, one inspired by recent events.

Shared on Instagram, the singer - who is worth around $700 million and has suggested no form of viable direct action during this crisis - wrote:

"For the Italians who inspired it… for the Irish… for ANYONE who this St. Patrick’s day is in a tight spot and still singing. For the doctors, nurses, carers on the front line, it's you we’re singing to."
