PODGORICA, APRIL 23, 2021 – On the occasion of World Immunization Week, which starts today, an animated video for the song Corona Party by UNICEF Montenegro National Goodwill Ambassador Antonije Pusic, better known as Rambo Amadeus, is being made available to the public, with the support of the British Embassy in Podgorica and UNICEF. The goal of the Corona Party video and song is to remind all citizens that scientific inventions, such as vaccines and drugs against coronavirus, and respecting the measures of #DistanceHandsMask will end the global pandemic and enable a return to normal life as soon as possible.
The animated video is aimed at bringing a necessary dose of encouragement and serenity to our difficult, daily fight against coronavirus. Thanks to science, light at the end of the tunnel is visible, so we should be particularly careful not to give up, now that we are close to the end. With this witty video and song, we are copying the proven recipe of our ancestors, who strengthened their spirits and raised morale in the most difficult moments with songs and humour, while now we need patience and observance of scientific recommendations.
Pusic highlighted the contribution of fellow artist Darko Vlaovic, who made an animated video of the difficult struggle waged by medical and health workers against coronavirus, in which science wins in the end.
Given the large amount of misinformation and conspiracy theories, presentation of the video for the song Corona Party is also an opportunity to remind ourselves that vaccines are among the greatest achievements of modern medicine. From the end of the 18th century until today, they have been preventing the outbreak of numerous infectious diseases and have saved millions of lives. Smallpox, which killed 300 million people during the 20th century alone, was successfully eradicated in 1979 thanks to the introduction of a safe and effective vaccine. Polio – a dangerous disease that has killed millions and paralysed or disabled millions – is now, thanks to vaccines, a dangerous endemic disease in just two countries – Pakistan and Afghanistan. Mother and newborn tetanus, which is fatal to newborns, has, thanks to immunization completed in July 2019, been almost completely eliminated worldwide, remaining in only 12 countries.
