We are being inundated with wave after wave of information about the COVID-19 pandemic on a daily, if not hourly basis, with no sign of that trend abating in the near future.

Certainly, there are many places you can go to on the internet to learn even more about the coronavirus and how it is attacking people around the world but, if you haven't come across it yet, you might enjoy this video (watch it below) from German animation studio Kurzgesagt.

This colourful explainer video breaks down how the virus that causes COVID-19 works, as well as what we can do as a world community to stop it. Kurzgesagt posted the video to its YouTube channel (Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell) one week ago and it has racked up more than 17.5 million views. On the YouTube channel, Kurzgesagt provides a link for the sources used for the information in the video.
