coronavirus vs flu

YouTuber Kurzgesagt raced to finish this important and colorful explainer about coronavirus and COVID-19. It’s a great way to understand the virus, the response to it, and what we can all do to help each other right now. Great to share with friends and loved ones, too!

The only complex thing about their channel is its name, which is German for “in a nutshell.” Everything is presented so regular people can make sense of science. Those who want more information can look at their sources. Via the channel:

In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. 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?

Please stay safe, follow local, state, provincial, and federal instructions, and check in with friends and loved ones. We can all make a difference together!
