The new reality leaves its mark on all spheres of life, including art. We are already accustomed to the online format of communication with friends, have learned to work remotely and have managed to adapt to all the circumstances offered by life. And the directors are shooting new documentaries about a disease that has disrupted the usual course of life on the entire planet.
The filmmakers are trying in their series to comprehend the new reality to which the pandemic has led. Journalists Alexander Urzhanov and Igor Makarov will try to analyze how disastrously the pandemic will affect the country's economy, and most importantly, the lives of ordinary people who are massively losing their jobs due to measures taken against the spread of COVID-19.
The lens will show people trying to survive in new conditions. They share their impressions of what is happening, talk about state aid to enterprises and the population. And they express the hope that the rapid economic decline will be followed by the same rapid rise as happened once after the end of the Spanish flu pandemic.
The new series from Netflix so far includes three episodes of just 20 minutes each. In the first, with J. K. Simmons, viewers will learn about why the pandemic was not prevented, although it was possible to do so, and what is the difference between COVID-19, all other known coronaviruses and other diseases that led to epidemics.
The second episode with Laura Linney tells about the difficult path that scientists and doctors have to go through trying to create a vaccine. Spectators are waiting for shocking discoveries. For example, they will be able to learn that a vaccine could already be ready, subject to funding for the development of a vaccine against another coronavirus.
In the third episode, Indris Elba will share her experience of recovering from the coronavirus and subsequent psychological adaptation, as well as talk about the irresponsibility of people who ignore quarantine measures. The third episode is able not only to inform the audience, but also to give them much-needed hope for the best at present.
In the next issue of the "Editorial" program, the author talks with an epidemiologist, virologist and biologist, who talk about the experience accumulated by mankind in combating various diseases, including those that have appeared already in the 21st century. And it reminds us that the measures being taken today are far from new, and quarantine, mask mode and social distancing were invented a long time ago. And the panic fear of the coronavirus is associated primarily with the increased humanization of society, which has learned to value human life. There is also reasoning in the program about why the COVID-19 problem concerns even those who do not believe in it.
“Coronavirus. Everything you need to know "
In the film of the First Channel, viewers can get acquainted with information about the appearance of the coronavirus, its mutations, features and lurking dangers. The creators talk about China's experience in combating the disease and its complications, about the effectiveness of treatment and the need or, on the contrary, no need for vaccination after the vaccine is created.
Comrade Virus: Scientists on the Coronavirus
The project, released in February 2020, has not lost its relevance. Answers to many questions about COVID-19 will be given by the head of the Institute of Vaccines and Serums, the head of a specialized laboratory and a virologist, a vaccine development specialist. The film analyzes the facts, debunks the myths about the origin of COVID-19, discusses the likelihood of using bacteriological weapons in the context of a pandemic, drawing an analogy with the anthrax epidemic in 1979 in Yekaterinburg.
Industry 4.0: Coronavirus VS Robots
In the film, viewers can get acquainted with the opinion of scientists about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the development of medicine in general and medical robotics in particular. This direction is especially important, as it can almost eliminate the contact of hospital staff and clinics with infected patients. Robots could measure the temperature of patients, robotic carts would distribute medicines, and globally drones could well track the movement of residents around the city.
The rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus has made adjustments to everyday life, and many things have appeared in everyday life that were not so widely used before. At the beginning of 2020, museums and historical societies in different countries began to collect a new collection of things and photographs, which in the future will help educate people about the coronavirus pandemic and human attempts to cope with a dangerous disease.
