An animated illustration, created by cartoonist Toby Morris, illustrates the importance of social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

The short cartoon shows how individual discipline can have a significant impact on slowing the spread of the virus.

The animation shows how the spread of the virus can be slowed by people taking simple measures like working from home and not attending social events.

The animation was part of a series of animations created for an article written by Dr Siouxsie Wiles for New Zealand website The Spinoff.
