CHANNEL 9 launches #slowthespread video

The Nine Network has released a video featuring stars directly affected by the COVID-19 disease

Taking a different tact from the Seven Network version, which focused on a feel good narrative, Nine has used its star power to remind us of the simple steps we can all take to #slowthespread, while also sharing heartfelt stories.

Richard Wilkins, who has tested positive to Coronavirus a number of times, talks about his reaction to hearing the news before we hear from other stars who share their fears and thoughts.

Hamish Blake finishes the video with a much needed laugh.

This is a well-produced promo and the tone is perfect. Well done Nine!
