From bubonic plague to COVID

Balancing the topic of death by mixing documentary style found imagery and simplistic line drawing to create witty and light illustrations. This long-read data-based article for leading Czech news iRozhlas looks at the death causes from bubonic plague till today. The COVID-19 pandemic raised a question of the cause of death, is it the acute illness or underlying conditions? Turns out these questions are not new and the decision might shape not only statistics but also the development of modern healthcare. And the end the article opens a topic of antibiotics resistance and sepsis as important challenges. The illustration follows each historic period in suitable found imagery combined with simple drawing, referring to the topics discussed indirectly and building up a distinctive emotion for each part. In the article the illustrations are animated by scrolling over. A spotlight is given to oddly sounding death causes such as ‘hit by a dog’ or ‘congenital wrong shape of the heart’ together with ‘congenital monsterity’. Read at irozhl.as/ckr
