Video: Kurzgesagt explain The Coronavirus

The wonderful team over at Kurzgesagt have jumped to it double fast, working day and night to put out an informative video about the Coronavirus.

The animators and researchers usually spend months working on each video, so to react to something so quickly really was a huge accomplishment. Kurzgesagt does state however, that the animation is a little more simplistic than usual, but it still looks great to us.

“In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities,” says Kurzgesagt. “In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus. What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?”
