This cartoon is titled 'New Categories', by Megan Herbert, self-published, 16th of November 2020. In a library, a man shelving a pile of books tells a woman, "We’ve moved a few things around. Travel books are in the Fantasy section, Politics is in Sci-Fi, and Epidemiology is in Self-Help. Good luck".

Label text: At the start of 2020, few people would have believed that Australia’s borders would be closed for almost two years, or that we would become a nation of armchair experts in virus spread and data modelling. This cartoon, produced before the pandemic’s first anniversary, retains its relevance and acts as a benchmark for shifting times.
