Germany reaches to younger audience with viral Covid-19 public service campaign

Published

1 minute read

Sometimes in the tsunami of news coming from south of the border, we forget there are other countries fighting wars, having elections, and trying to win the battle against a pandemic that is wreaking havoc with their people and their economies.

Germany has been a leader in this since the start and after a summer of relatively low infection rates, is now facing a far bigger second wave. They’ve been leaders in testing and tracing initiatives and while its caseload climbed in the early stages, the number of deaths remained lower than many countries hardest it. Now the country is seeing its second wave and it’s much more dramatic with nearly four times as many infections.

A series of public service announcements have been produced to help convince the population to stay at home, and they’re funny.

The humorous campaign focuses on the idea of “Coronavirus Heroes”.  It’s shot in a documentary style and features older people reflecting on how they fought the pandemic when they were young. The three clips are featured below and they all contain English sub-titles.  Enjoy!

The Results have Convinced Me

The Results have Convinced Me

I have been diabetic for a while but have never cared much about monitoring it. Finally, my doctor got upset at me and suggested I pay more attention and referred me to a Family Nurse to help me get focused. The nurse was very understanding and she listened to me. She made suggestions. However, I wasn’t really convinced this would make any difference. She asked me to write down everything I ate or drank and take my blood sugars regularly and write them down. I started to see trends and the errors in my ways. I decreased my intake of sweets and pop.

My A1C went from 15.8 to 7.1. I got more involved in activities. Now I walk 10,000 steps almost every day. The walking seems to help me keep everything else in line. And then the nurse suggested that I start doing regular blood pressure readings and I saw my blood pressure improve. An average reading for me now is 122/54. My doctor is really happy. My pant size decreased also. I was forced to retire a few years ago due to back issues, but I find when I exercise regularly I have much less back pain. I no longer needed pain killers.

You can see how I have become convinced that I can make a big difference in my health through my lifestyle choices. I would highly recommend anyone not paying attention to their diabetes to see a Family Nurse.

PETER VON TIESENHAUSEN’S EPIC ART

Published on

from the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards Foundation

Peter von Tiesenhausen, a Lieutenant Governor of Alberta 2015 Distinguished Artist, spent the past six months hunkered down in Demmit Alberta building a deluxe playground for the community center – and musing about connectedness, the importance of social interaction and his role as an artist in the social contract.

Peter’s last project prior to the March 2020 COVID-19 lockdown was the installation of Things I Knew to be True in the newly renovated Stanley A. Milner Public Library, part of the City of Edmonton’s public art collection.
