In fact, 130 countries have yet to administer a single dose of COVID-19 vaccines, while a handful of rich countries have more than 1 billion doses, much more than needed to fully vaccinate their own populations.
In continued support of ONE’s COVID-19 relief efforts, we created Pandemica; a COVID-19 purgatory. Designed to raise awareness of the critical importance of global vaccine access, Pandemica is an imaginatively drawn collection of seven animated videos depicting a universe that brings to life the inequalities the world is facing.
Welcome to Pandemica. Where pandemics go on forever and vaccine equity is conspicuously absent. The world of Pandemica is inhabited by a cast of delightfully unrealistic characters representing no particular nationality, race or ethnicity. Voiced by an array of celebrity friends including Bono, Connie Britton, Penélope Cruz, Danai Gurira, Nick Kroll, Kumail Nanjiani, David Oyelowo, Phoebe Robinson, Michael Sheen and Wanda Sykes, Pandemica launched globally and is currently running. To date it has received over 7 billion impressions, over 800 global press pickups and we’ve only just begun. Be sure to tune into Vox, Buzzfeed and Discovery+ for more on Pandemica.
