An entertaining animation, series or movie about the interaction between COVID-19 and our body (immune system, mind, emotions) while informing about preventiv means, increasing awareness of the greater cause, what influences does the virus have on a meta-level and learning about how to deal with it in our everyday life. (inspired by the movie  “Inside Out” and the Netflix song explaining a virus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la6nXuAw-Oo) A range of series could explain different phases of the virus infecting our bodys and at the same time entertain and educate people over a period of time. It can move viewers young and old to take a look at what it means to be infected, how to prevent infections, ways to deal with being in quarantine and most importantly how it affects our body as a whole considering mind and emotions - to motivate and change our behavioral pattern.

Hi Isaac Jumba yes, the idea was inspired by the movie “Inside Out” - which also had a deeper message about our inner emotion (https://www.forbes.com/sites/jvchamary/2015/08/30/inside-out-science/) and the Netflix song explaining a virus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la6nXuAw-Oo). Dont get me wrong - I dont intend to use the communication and visualization style to make it "childish" or "playful" since I am aware how serious this topic is. But it could enable to speak to a wide range of people and open the conversation amongst all of us!
