“BC is now ‘Before Coronavirus.’ AD is now “After Distancing‘“

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was so important, people had new names for B.C. and A.D.

“We’re gonna need a better abbreviation than PP for pre-pandemic and post-pandemic. BC (before Coronavirus) and AD (after distancing)” was posted on Twitter by Dr PayItBack on March 17, 2020. “We are in the middle of the new BC and AD. Before Coronavirus and After Distancing” was posted on Twitter by Will Conlon on March 28, 2020.

I think that soon we will soon need a new way of measuring years due to the impact of CV-19. I suggest:
BC: Before Coronavirus
AD: After Distancing
This makes absolute sense and I foresee zero confusion.
