I made this work recently as the virus is still very much with us. In this work the man is trying to see the virus with a magnifying glass but the virus is microscopic - a pointless task. Most people except that many forms of the Flu exist. But still he persists with no medical skill or knowledge as he cannot see it, in his opninon it must not be. I feel it is an insult to all those who have died of Covid-19 and front line staff who have to deal with daily dangers of infection from Covid-19.
