During these times when the world is facing a pandemic of COVID-19, most of us are having a hard time staying positive. With each passing day, the number of affected people is only rising. There is an increased wave of panic and distress among people. Everything is closed, most of the businesses have shut down and people are quarantined into their homes. Those who have to step outside, have to practice social distancing to keep the virus from spreading. It is an extremely delicate situation and nothing seems to cheer us up. Everybody had great expectations form this year 2020 but unfortunately, they all went down the drain.
Although 2020 appears to be a cursed year, some creative-minded, optimistic people know how to stay strong and positive during these difficult times. Anastasia Panina an illustrator from Moscow came up with a rather inventive idea to spread awareness regarding prevention against the coronavirus. She started a series called “Villans Against COVID-19” in whish she illustrated vintage villains like Freddy Krueger and Pennywise the clown, each one giving out a preventive tip to keep ourself safe from the coronavirus.

“For my new series of works, I once again called on my and your favorite characters to tell you, my little horror fans, some points about the coronavirus. So, the masks. Having learned the information in more detail, I realized that ordinary medical masks don’t protect against the virus. But they can prevent its spread, so it’s more rational to wear masks for those who already have symptoms. As Jason did, for example. Нe had a cough and he put on a mask while in a public place. Also, masks need to be changed frequently. And it’s important to practice good hand hygiene before wearing and after removing a mask.”
“A lot has already been said about the importance of handwashing. And Michael Myers reminds you of this again. So repeat after Michael: wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds and be sure to use soap. By the way, maybe you are still doing it wrong. So Michael and I strongly recommend that you learn the information on how to wash your hands right. This is especially important in this strange time!”
“Here is one of the rules that is the most difficult to keep, in my opinion, but in this situation, it’s really necessary. People touch their faces countless times a day without even realizing it. So how to stop touching your face? Here’s great advice from Freddy. Just imagine there are sharp blades on your fingers and always keep that in your mind.”
Anastasia Panina who goes by the name Anastasia in red on her social media, said in an interview “I was really upset by the news of COVID, especially when it came to my country. I looked at various infographics about precautions and prevention, and it seemed terribly boring to me. Then, to distract from negative thoughts and slightly improve the mood of myself and other horror fans, I decided to create my own anti-COVID tips which would be memorable and definitely not boring. At first, I was going to draw only 5 works, but since these illustrations got such an incredible response and spread on the internet, in the end, I made 9 pieces,”
“Hope you already know the best way to stop the virus now is just to stay home. So don’t go outside without a strong reason, my little horror fans! Take an example from Ghostface: talk to friends and relatives on the phone or the internet, read horror books, watch scary movies and TV shows. You can even learn something new. Many educational platforms have opened free access to their courses. For example, I’m taking drawing courses now. Of course, not everyone can stay at home because of their profession… My dark heart with these guys. Be careful.”
“Today, Pennywise will teach you how to cough and sneeze properly. This is especially important in the current situation. If you have a tissue, cover your nose and mouth while coughing or sneezing, then throw it in the trash and wash or sanitize your hands. If there are no tissues, then you can use the inside of your elbow. But never use the palms of your hands. Because that way, you can turn your hands into a biological weapon.”
“Limiting close contact with other people is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19. That’s why it’s so important to keep a social distance of at least 6 feet (2 meters). Although this isn’t always easy, especially if there is someone nearby who doesn’t comply with this rule. But Regan, for example, due to her possession, can make people just not want to get close to her. And here’s some advice for you: stay away from other people like they are possessed by the Devil himself.”
“Maybe you didn’t know, but the coronavirus can stay alive for up to several days on surfaces. Therefore, you should now clean your home more often and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, as Samara does. And also don’t forget to aerate the room from time to time.”
“In this hard time, it’s very important to take care of your health, both physical and mental. Of course, this doesn’t guarantee 100% protection against the virus, but a healthy lifestyle increases the body’s resistance to infection. Just look at Leatherface. Thanks to a balanced diet and moderate physical activity, he feels absolutely great! So get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, be physically active. Now you can find various home workout programs on the internet. Also, try to maintain a positive attitude. Hope my anti-COVID-19 series helps you a bit with this.”
“I really hope that none of you will need this advice. But if you suddenly get sick and the symptoms are like a coronavirus, stay home! Call your doctor if possible, or the medical institution, or hotline, report your symptoms, and follow the instructions. Don’t wait until it just disappears and be sure to seek medical help, as Dr. Hannibal Lecter advises.”
A great initiative was taken by Anastasia in red to spread awareness about prevention against COVID-19. Do share this with others to spread awareness. Remind more and more people to stay in their homes as much as possible and practice social distancing to keep the virus from spreading.
