Artist Notices That Many Articles About Coronaviruses Are Difficult To Digest, Creates An Easy Infocomic
There are a lot of different opinions when it comes to COVID-19, also known as the Wuhan virus or just coronavirus. Some people think it’s nothing more than a new strand of seasonal flu while others don’t dare to leave their homes without a respirator and are already stacking up on toilet paper and non-perishables. Of course, the media isn’t helping at all, with all sorts of fearmongering articles being published left and right.
Tired of all this commotion, illustrator Wei Man Kow created an easy-to-read comic summarizing what she learned about coronaviruses in general and also added some safety precautions. “I found that many informative articles about the topic were difficult to digest, so I tried to simplify the comic as much as possible so that they would be understandable even for children,” says the artist. She even made the comic available as an infographic that you can download and print as a poster. With the help of many others, the artist translated the comic into multiple languages and you can help as a translator too by emailing Wei at firstname.lastname@example.org.
