Today Telegram published a blog article regarding Coronavirus news. In it they also mentioned a channel where they announce official and verified channels with information on COVID-19. I just visited that channel out of curiosity and saw there’s a sticker pack with virus stickers. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry about it. 🤔
The New York Times published a photo story (open the link in a private tab to avoid the login-wall) with photos of public places around the world in times of COVID-19. The emptiness in these pictures is on the one hand magical, but also somehow frightening. A virus has actually managed to stop the world.
These images are haunted and haunting, like stills from movies about plagues and the apocalypse, but in some ways they are hopeful.
“Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell” is a YouTube channel that explains different topics in short videos in a clear and easy to understand way. The videos are also visually works of art:
We are a small team who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.
In this video they explain the coronavirus and what everyone can and should do.
Today I took the chance, as long as it is still possible to leave the house, and used the good weather to run a little. Only 4.5 km and not very fast, because my fitness is on a pretty low level at the moment. But I realized how important this exercise is, especially at a time when you only leave the house to go grocery shopping. Running in particular is an uncritical way to do sports. You can do it alone and you can keep enough distance from other people. And one advantage: it can be really challenging.
Nice thing: Because of Corona and because there are no presence lectures at my university at the moment, they have installed a Rocket.Chat instance. And this although there are a lot of deficits concerning digitalisation.
