A quarter of the entire world is in lockdown, as coronavirus continues its unwelcome spread across the globe. It’s a frightening time, but back when Marvel’s Spider-Man released in 2018, the idea of a deadly virus was all largely make-believe. That’s what makes this billboard discovered in the release’s fictional New York City all the more eerie, as it contains the kind of public health information we’re all used to hearing by now.
“Stay safe,” the poster states, as shared by Alekshy on Reddit. “Stay home.” It goes on to stress that you must “avoid contact with others” and that “symptoms may not be evident”. There’s no mention of washing your hands, but hey, that’s just good personal hygiene – pandemic or not!
