In the news I read most days, many of the headlines feature coronavirus in one way or another. I’ve been reading about the rate of spread in different countries, about government responses, mortality rates, and travel advisories. (I was meant to be flying to Spain today, but even if Spain would take me, I’m not going to an airport.) I’ve been concerned at reports of people who are still unconvinced that there’s anything to be worried about.
If you, like me, haven’t been able to keep up with the articles that promise to explain in depth about the science of COVID-19 and what actually happens to those who are sick, then perhaps you’ll be interested in seeing the movie version. I’m happy to report that it’s not a documentary, it’s a cartoon.
Because I think that a clearer understanding of the medical implications of contracting the virus can affect our choices, I invite you to pass this along to others. There’s a lot depending on how well we do our part to slow the spread of this disease.
