The brief video discusses the importance of social distancing and how proper precautions can help slow the spread of the virus.

The video is being prominently featured in the video carousel in the Browse section of both Apple Music and iTunes. Those who would like to watch the video do not need an active subscription to Apple Music to see it.

The video features three key players from the White House Coronavirus Task Force: NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, Coronavirus Response Coordinator Dr. Debora Fox, and United States Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams.

The video shows the three talking about how to properly socially distance yourself, which includes keeping at least six feet away from others.

"You may say 'Why six feet apart?'" explains Dr. Fox. "'Cause there's been a lot of scientific evidence with respiratory diseases. That's how far your droplets can go when you sneeze or cough."

It also explains how critical it is for those to avoid unnecessary travel crowded locations, such as movie theaters and concerts, during the coronavirus pandemic.

Apple is helping its customers keep track of the latest events in the coronavirus outbreak, by adding a section to the Apple News app providing special coverage of the global medical emergency.
