Cartoon Covid-19 in cartoons

Seven months of the coronavirus in cartoons

Since the appearance of the coronavirus in China at the end of 2019, press cartoonists have extensively covered its progress, its impact on our societies, as well as measures taken by politicians. Here, we present to you the work of eight of these cartoonists, voted on by Voxeurop members.

The press illustrations presented here were selected from a choice of 16 illustrations, from long-time Voxeurop partner, Cartoon Movement. Anne Derenne’s illustration titled Quarantine: a reflection on freedom is featured on the front page as it received the most votes. “Quarantine and isolation makes us value freedom more than ever,” she writes.
