Charities, bloggers and businesses need to illustrate their coronavirus-related content and appeals with relevant images. That can be a challenge with some staff on furlough, others working from home and minimal opportunity to get out to take photos. So here is a collection of coronavirus image and video resources, most of them free, that might be of some help.

1. Crello –  offers free image templates on the topic of coronavirus.

2. IconFinder – offers several sets of icons illustrating coronavirus awareness.

3. Stockphotosecrets – offers a selection of free coronavirus-related images (free registration required).
It also has a list of other related image resources.

4. Loom – screencapture and video tool Loom has cut its prices, removing recording limits on some of its plans, and extending its services to educational institutions to free “for ever”. It offers a free service anyway.

5. Pexels – free stock photo and video site Pexels is offering free Zoom backgrounds, to brighten up the background as you spend much of your day in video calls.

6. From physical to virtual events – mobile giving service Donr is offering free image templates for charities that have had to convert physical fundraising events into digital events or campaigns.
