Stanford Medicine Explains How COVID-19 Spreads and How It Can Be Stopped

This short animated video shows how to stop the virus' spread.

As SARS Cov-2 quickly spreads around the world causing many victims and putting entire regions under lockdown, the virus is still misunderstood despite making news headlines every day. Luckily Stanford Medicine made this video to explain how the virus is spread and how we can stop it.

It all starts with a simple handshake. The hand shaker then gets on a plane and touches his face. From that one plane, it then spreads to more planes traveling around the world.

It continues to be transmitted through things infected people touch, from a mother to her son, from that son to his friends and so forward. Entire cities are infected and the news starts to spread.

It sends people into a panic as they rush to buy all the groceries, masks and hand sanitizers they can. That's where the measures come in to stop the virus' spread.

Public outings are forbidden. People are isolated in their homes. Social distancing is practiced. Working from home is implemented. The infected are taken care of in hospitals. Hands are washed thoroughly and surfaces are disinfected.

Slowly the virus runs its course and the world goes back to normal. Help stop the spread, follow the measures implemented by your government. Stay home and stay safe. We are all in this together.
