The COVID-19 Chronicles: Singapore's Journey from Pandemia to Peri-Pandemic Limbo
No one is safe until everyone is safe. Singapore's struggle against the coronavirus mirrors those being waged by countries everywhere against a relentless, invisible enemy. In times of crisis, confusion and pandemonium abound. Sensing a need for simple and concise public health education and information that could help people to make sense of a bewildering new abnormal, the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine launched a long-running series of illustrated stories on social media platforms. The COVID-19 Chronicles quickly took off, drawing the attention of the WHO's Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network, which arranged for the series to be shared with other countries.
This book features every Chronicles story published, and tells the story of the work behind the scenes to bring each episode to life. Offering bite-sized explanations of issues and topics seeded by the pandemic's global march, the Chronicles prods readers to stay safe, while also providing a humorous take on Singaporean life in the time of COVID-19.
