FEW events in modern history have harmed the emotional well-being of people around the world as has the COVID-19 pandemic. The threat of contracting or transmitting a life-threatening disease and the added challenges of anxiety and isolation have had an immeasurable impact on people of all backgrounds.

To help address this situation, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses, jw.org, is featuring a video entitled Virus Outbreaks—What Can You Do. The three-minute whiteboard animation offers families practical methods to cope emotionally and spiritually with the effects of the pandemic.

Since the pandemic began, jw.org has featured information designed to assist people of all ages and backgrounds to remain calm, informed, and healthy. With content in an unprecedented 1,027 languages, the site also addresses often-asked questions and points to the Bible’s assurance of a bright future. Website articles are available in several Philippine languages, including: Bicol, Cebuano, Hiligaynon, Iloko, Pangasinan, Tagalog, and Waray-Waray.
