You Want a Super Simple and Informative Coronavirus Video? This Is It

Whether you need a succinct summary or you’re a total news junky who desperately wants something compelling to share with a friend who isn’t taking things seriously, this is the video you should watch.

Kurzgesagt makes all sorts of absolutely fantastic videos and we’re longtime fans—in fact, we recently shared their video on the science of gratitude.

Their new video about the coronavirus is equally as brilliant as the rest of their work. It does a great job explaining the key details about the coronavirus including: how viruses in general work, how the coronavirus infects the body, what happens after infection, and how what we do today determines the outcome of the pandemic.

It’s eight and a half minutes and it’s worth every second. Watch it and forward it to your friends—especially the ones who aren’t taking social distancing and self-isolation seriously.
