The Coronavirus Crisis in 10 Cartoons

Our cartoonists are almost exclusively drawing about the coronavirus these days. We publish one cartoon on our homepage each day and share another one later in the day on our social media channels. This means loads and loads of cartoons do not get the attention from us that they deserve. Here we have made a top 10 of cartoons that have not had our attention yet; they offer perspectives on the various aspects of the coronavirus crisis. We think these cartoons are great, but they are a somewhat arbitrary selection, so we encourage you to also go and take a look in our newsroom.
