The corona virus COVID-19 pandemic has tremendous impact on our lives filling our minds with terror and disrupting our regular life. The pandemic has spread to over 196 countries, affecting 436,785 people and causing 19,637 deaths as we speak. The virus has brought the whole world to stop with deaths, quarantines, lockdowns in several countries and crashing economies.
While scientists are racing to find vaccine for the virus, graphic designers work on spreading awareness about the virus amidst people through their artistic creations in online platforms. WHO has advised people to maintain personal hygiene, practice social distancing and self isolating if they develop symptoms of the virus. Graphic designers around the world have come up with illustrations on personal hygiene practices, symptoms of the diseases, prevention and control, urging people to adhere to all measures to slow down the outbreak.
Graphic designer Christoph Niemann says, "The best advice I read about corona today was about changing our mindset: instead of trying not to get infected, we should assume we ARE infected and do everything so we don't transmit it to somebody else. Stay safe and when you need to be out, try to have a kind word for all the people who are working under a huge amount of pressure (nurses, bus drivers, police officers, supermarket cashiers)."
Here are some informative and creative illustrations on what we could do to combat the corona virus pandemic.
