    A huge thanks to the experts who helped us on short notice with the video. Especially “Our World in Data”, the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems - and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic.
    In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the “Severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2”, that causes the disease called COVID19, and that everyone simply calls Coronavirus.
    What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

Phew. That might have been the fastest we ever made a video. Literally working day and night. A huge challenge in talking about Corona was that the science is ongoing. So we put in extra special care to have good sources for this video and will update them in the coming weeks and months. Check them out here: https://sites.google.com/view/sourcescorona We could not have made this video without experts who took time in one of the busiest periods of their own careers. A huge thanks especially to Dr James Gurney and Dr Max Roser of Our World in Data for helping us make sure the video was as accurate as it could be in a situation that is changing daily. Also a big shoutout to https://ourworldindata.org/ – the online publication for research and data on the world’s largest problems – and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona Pandemic. Working together with them over the years has been a delight. Ok. We are very tired and are going to take a nap now. Stay healthy!

You know kurzgesagt?, one of the strengths of your channel is that it has a lot of subtitles and it's very important because everyone in the world has a different language and not everyone can master it. continue to work and create content that is as attractive as possible and don't forget to add subtitles so that me and everyone can understand it. thank you kurzgesagt^^

This pandemic has me concerned. My dad is seriously immunocompromised. But also, one of my closest friends was tested yesterday. We've not got the results back yet, but I'm really worried for her. She's young, but she has a bunch of medical issues. If she has it she will probably have to be hospitalized.

To the people who thing a vaccine should be made, that is wrong. Because vaccines can sometimes cause the illness and it only helps people without the virus. A cure would be the best option and thats why its taking so long.

But a vaccine would slow the rate of infection and possibly prevent another outbreak in the future.

From what I've read, it can cause damage, and people with kidney disease appear to be at both a higher risk of infection and a higher risk of death. It's rare for the disease to cause kidney damage though.

So basically it quickly makes soup of your lungs? Is it because lungs are ventilated by default making virus even quicker to spread among near cells. So is there a way to differently introduce oxygen to blood stream, or make it come from other way than trachea?

I tried to show this video, in the portuguese version in Facebook and it was blocked. I was not aware of the legal problem of sharing this video. I though that, as it is one of the ways to help people to understand and be safe in the fight of corona virus, I could share it. But it seems that you are more interested in money than in help people, specially in this moment.
