Please note the following is accurate as of Early February 2020

The Coronavirus outbreak has been dominating headlines for the last few weeks. I am growing concerned with the increasing amount of panic, misinformation and xenophobia being circulated and wanted to do something to help.

The following is a summary of what we know so far about the outbreak and why we should be taking it seriously. I hope the comic format makes the information more accessible and is a good starting point for staying well informed.
