Pandemica depicts various animated characters stuck in situations and areas where they are being prevented from getting the vaccine.

The series was launched by the ONE campaign, the global health and anti-poverty organisation co-founded by the U2 frontman, with the series of animations featuring characters voiced by Kumail Nanjiani, Phoebe Robinson and Wanda Sykes.

The seven-episode series features the stars as various characters as they highlight the lack of coronavirus vaccines available to people in many of the world's poorest countries.

"Pandemica's animated world animates a simple truth - that where you live shouldn't determine whether you get these life-saving shots," Bono said.

"Even while many of us still wait our turn, we need to commit to making sure that billions of people around the world aren't left at the back of the line. It's the right thing to do, obviously, but it's also the only way out of this pandemic for all of us.

"If the vaccine isn't everywhere, this pandemic isn't going anywhere. We're all trapped in Pandemica, but only some can get out," he said.

ONE campaign CEO Gayle Smith said: "This virus has waged war on the world and we need to fight back with all we've got. Vaccine access isn't just about what's fair, it's also about what's smart - we can't end a global pandemic until we stop the virus from spreading and mutating everywhere."

All episodes are available to view on the ONE campaign's YouTube channel.
