A new coronavirus—a type of virus named for its crown-like shape—emerged in Wuhan, China in 2019, and then spread to people around the world. While the most severe cases often dominate the headlines, they’re not the whole story. Most coronavirus cases have been mild, and healthy bodies can fight off the infection on their own. Find out more about how viruses work, and the best ways to prevent them from infecting more people. Viruses can’t spread without our help, so click play to learn how not to help them!

Full transcript:

Against a black screen, a green cursor types out “Where: Tim and Moby’s Garage,” and then “When: The not-so-distant future.”

TV static resolves to an animation of Tim looking into a camera, fiddling with its controls. The screen blinks a few times and we hear sounds indicating technical difficulties.

TIM: Hellooooo, is this thing working?

Tim bangs the camera a couple times and the image stabilizes.

TIM: Ah, there we go.

Tim steps back from the camera. He’s in a garage, surrounded by electronic equipment. Moby walks in from off-screen wearing a sparkly silver jumpsuit and goggles.

TIM: Hey, it's us, and as you can see from Moby's outfit, we're coming to you from the future!

Tim points to a contraption with lots of cables coming out of it from the table behind him.

TIM: Don't ask me how, something to do with this duodynetic core thingamajig. It's pretty complicated, Moby did a lot of the w--

MOBY: Beep!

TIM: Okay, all of the work. Anyway, the reason we went through all this trouble is to tell you something really, really important. Thank you.

The image cuts to the infield of a baseball game, blinking a few times before resolving. The image cuts to Nat and Rita sitting in the crowded stands of the baseball game.

RITA: During the long months of the pandemic, thanks for physical distancing: Staying at least six feet apart from anyone you don't live with. You stuck to the rules, even when it was tough to miss out on fun gatherings.

NAT: More than anything else, that reduced the transmission of the coronavirus.

We hear the crack of bat and in an instant, Rita holds up a baseball glove and catches a line drive in her glove. It’s shown on the giant screen in the stadium. While holding the baseball in her glove in one hand, Rita bites into a hot dog that she’s holding in the other hand.

A wavering image cuts to Annie sitting on an exam table in a doctor’s office. A nurse measures her blood pressure.

ANNIE: Thanks for taking 20 seconds to scrub your hands with soap and water, like, all the time. That kills germs, and helped stop the spread of the virus.

Cut to a school bus. The image wavers to show many kids seated in the bus. Cassie appears on a seat, with her backpack beside her.

CASSIE: Thanks for wearing a mask whenever you left the house. You listened to the research—that masks were key to stopping the spread of COVID-19. Because coughing, sneezing--even just talking--releases thousands of tiny droplets. Each of which can carry the coronavirus!

Cassie sneezes into the crook of her elbow.

Cut back to Rita and Nat in the stands of the baseball game.

NAT: Things got pretty confusing when the world started opening up again. But you changed your behavior to keep up with public health guidelines. Like staying home when you felt even a little sick. You set the example, and reminded grown-ups that this stuff is important.

We hear another bat crack, and the crowd goes wild. Nat and Rita jump up and down, embracing and cheering.

Cut back to Tim and Moby in the garage.

TIM: It was hard, and some of us experienced heartbreaking loss along the way. But we worked together, listened to the experts, and made it through. So, from all of us here in the post-pandemic future: thank you.

We hear strange noises and see flashing lights.

MOBY: Beep!

TIM: Ten more seconds?!

The scene goes staticky.

TIM: Uh... what else? Stay strong, you're gonna get through this thing! Keep up all those safe practices, and uh, that alien attack next January? Turns out that’s a big hoax!

Staticky cut to a sign that reads “Whoops! We are experiencing technical difficulties.” Fade to black.

How to Teach Your Kids During the Coronavirus Pandemic: Try 'Unschooling'

Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines.

School's out…indefinitely.

Parents across the world are attempting to juggle their work schedules with taking care of their children full-time, putting them under enormous stress.

Kerry McDonald, an education researcher and author of Unschooled: Raising Curious, Educated Children Outside the Classroom, sees the current moment as an opportunity to rethink how we teach our children. McDonald, who also homeschools her own four kids, recommends that parents experiment with radical unschooling, which proposes that kids learn better when they direct their own education.

Reason's Zach Weissmueller chatted with McDonald about strategies for struggling parents and why she thinks that the COVID-19 crisis could finally catapult society out of the industrial era and into the imagination age.

Hi friends, this is an experiment with black-pepper to teach kids the importance of hand washing. Please make them wash their hands thoroughly as this has now become a necessity for us. As per CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
Hope this video will help you in this state of global emergency. Please take care and prevent the disease by following WHO and other health care bodies of the world.

Thanks for watching ????

Sprinkle black pepper (shown as germs) on water in a container. Touch the germs with a finger, the particles will stick to finger. In the second time touch after applying liquid soap. The particles will run away.
This happens due to surface tension of water (rain drop has a bulging shape which is created by surface tension of water). When the soap is applied, the surface tension of water is lowered (this is one of the reasons why soap makes a good cleaner.) basically causing the bulging of the water to lower (or flatten) carrying the floating pepper to the sides.
