Speed Draw 3: Social Distancing During COVID-19

Speed Draw 3: Social Distancing During COVID-19

Hi, friends. Every once in a while, we make a speed draw
video as part of our “All Around the Agar” updates. These are updates where we can talk to our
community. While I talk, Petunia is going to be drawing
characters from our immune system video. We know this is a strange time right now with
the pandemic of COVID-19. There are a lot of questions and concerns. I want to say a
bit about the importance of following advised social distancing. I know it can be hard and even confusing. Maybe you don’t feel concerned about getting
this virus, and maybe you feel like this is too much. Unfortunately, that mindset can create a lot
of trouble for our community. You see, even if you have mild symptoms or
no symptoms of this virus, you could still spread this virus to others and some that
might not recover as well as you. Those vulnerable populations include the elderly
and the immunocompromised, like people with autoimmune diseases, people recovering from
surgeries, or people going through cancer treatments. When people in the vulnerable population get
the virus, they have a higher likelihood of being placed in the critical care unit of
a hospital. If this happens all at once, like it has in
some parts of the world, the hospitals can get overwhelmed by the number of cases: they
can run out of enough hospital beds and they can run out of specific equipment such as
ventilators that they need. And if you think that still doesn’t affect
you, remember that we all rely on hospitals and medical professionals to treat far more
than this virus. We don’t say this to scare you but to emphasize
the importance of social distancing. By social distancing, you are helping “flatten
the curve” of of the spread of this virus so as not to overwhelm the hospitals and medical
staff. Everyone is a handling the news a bit differently
as daily life gets tweaked a bit every day. Knowing that everyone is a bit uncertain,
we hope you’ll find the ability to be a bit more patient with others. We’re not panicking, we are following CDC
guidelines so we can make smart choices. We are spending a lot of time, more time than
usual, at home. There are a lot of people working hard to
keep you safe. From first responders to medical professionals
to pharmacy, grocery store, and waste management employees, they are working tirelessly to
keep life as normal as possible. Please do the same for them and your community
by taking self-distancing seriously, no matter how healthy you are. Also, if you’re looking for edu videos on
YouTube to stay curious while you’re at home, we’re part of a community that has
a spreadsheet of edu videos you can check out in the video details. Please stay safe; we’re all in this together. Well that’s it for the Amoeba Sisters, and
we remind you to stay curious.

    I hope this virus can end soon like maybe by late April

  10. KirbyFan2020

    Thx for making this video! You guys are always so helpful! Do you know when this virus will end? I’m from Oklahoma and we only have 17 people infected with the coronavirus… so it’s not a lot, but I have been washing my hands a lot and I have been staying at home since it’s spring break in my area. I’m just pretty much waiting for this virus to end.

  11. Sneaksies

    it makes no difference for me personally, i never leave my house. stay safe everyone 🙂

  12. no privacy

    It's OK to Be Smart did very good video about flattening the curve.

  13. Kent Usher Dagon

    I think this virus ends up until next year! Possible will be!
    Yeah, Covid-19 will occur until next year… (Year means month, tho)

  14. Allan Vang

    My question is why are peope acting like its the apocalypse? The virus has very low kill rate less than 1% in some cases (conpared to ebola's 50%), isn't a true airborne disease meaning not as contagious and has only killed 4k people out of hundreds millions? 100% this viruse needs to be taken very seriously but at the same time we need to stop panicking, buying more than we need to, and follow the advice given to us by professional organizations like WHO, CDC, etc.

    Thank you❤

  21. naomi

    a couple of months ago you could probably do your own thing outdoors and just wash your hands, but now its just so dumb!! im glad the government is giving out funds to american citizens so we dont have to worry about jobs n' stuff and we can solely focus on being safe!

    on the other hand, i love that it's called "all around the agar" lol- you guys should make an episode where we get to tour the petridish!

    idk man, but cos of social anxiety, I kinda like being at home, and not having to go uni

  30. pinaychild

    I work in an Emergency Department and I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate you spreading the message of how serious this pandemic is. On top of the emergencies we are having like heart attack, strokes, traumas, we are having to work harder under stressful conditions with protocols changing every day, or sometimes after a couple hours, while trying to scramble for PPE and keep ourselves safe.

  31. MatthieuL107

    Anyone read this comment shall human race live on

    If covid 19 Is in your country may god be with us and if you think vaccine is coming it will take years for safe vaccine to come the faster and to much pressure when they try it earlier some of those volunteer will be doing fine but some might died cause how body react to it it will take years for good health vaccine or cure or drug for know if it not control government and world we know it will fall apart cause we riot and panic and to much death and infections sadly this is just beginning may god or religion you believe in be with you
    Goodbye goodnight

  50. روزبح احمد

    Hello Amoeba sisters, how do viruses die outside the host cell if they are just genetic materials inside a protein membrane? Are they not supposed to remain in the environment forever, infect and become active once they encounter host cells? How do people say the Covid-19 can live max. around 8 hours on surfaces outside host cells? Please clarify.

  51. Гулзат Роспаева

    Thank you!!!
