WATCH: The story behind the St Lucian COVID-19 cartoon for all ages

A Saint Lucian animator and artist has used his talent and skills to educate the public on the global pandemic that is the coronavirus, which as of Tuesday, March 24, 2020, has infected over 400,000 people and claimed over 17,000 lives worldwide.

Ted Sandiford of A.C.I.D. Kreationz, created an animated video with a St Lucian audience of all ages in mind in which Mekhi, the host, interviews COVID-19 itself.

According to Sandiford, there was a lot of ignorance surrounding the pandemic and he felt the best way to sensitize the public and bring that message across was through animation so people of all ages could understand COVID-19 and its dangers.

Check out the video of Sandiford telling Loop News the story behind the video below.
