With the number of Coronavirus cases on the rise, Comedy Central’s The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah will have Dr. Anthony Fauci as a guest on tonight’s episode at 22:30 CAT (DStv Channel 122).
Dr Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and White House Coronavirus Task Force Member since the COVID-19 pandemic began, will share pertinent information about the importance of staying home and practicing social distancing in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Dr Fauci has specifically selected influential personalities, such as Trevor Noah, to share factual and authoritative information about COVID-19 due to their social and digital reach as well as the quality of their YouTube audiences, in order to reach younger audiences that may not be consuming news through more traditional sources.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah recently replaced the live studio format with The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah which successfully premiered on YouTube this month. The show is produced and distributed remotely by The Daily Show team working from their homes.
The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah forms part of ViacomCBS Networks International’s #AloneTogether campaign that lives across the various channels’ on-air and digital platforms. #AloneTogether aims to encourage people to exercise social distancing and stay home to slow down the spread of the virus. Most importantly, the campaign highlights forging connections through entertainment – and ViacomCBS’ portfolio of channels offers loads of quality entertainment.
Be sure to tune in to Comedy Central Africa tonight at 22:30 CAT to listen to Dr Fauci and Trevor’s important and enlightening conversation about COVID-19, staying home and social distancing.
