The show, which follows individuals who work to combat the spread of Covid-19, aired on Sky’s Showcase earlier this week while it is also set to become available via platforms including YouTube and Facebook.

It will also be offered via streamer OnDemandChina and iTalkBB in North America, as well as on TV2Z in the Netherlands.
