Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of 32 public health posters on COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019) published in China during 2020. The posters appear to be government-issued propaganda, advocating for unity and shared responsibility and featuring images of heroic labor figures, families, and medical workers coming together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The posters do not identify a specific issuing agency. Some of the posters reference Wuhan, China. Almost all of the text on the posters is in Chinese. However, a few of the posters feature phrases in English, including "Epidemic assistance," "Spring blossoms unity is strength," "Wuhan come on," "Go through the Winter and welcome the Spring," and "Our Wuhan is waking up."
