The mini-comic features Vaayu, a cape-wearing young superhero who lives in the foothills of Himalayas. His sole aim is to “work for better public health and environment.” The story starts with a busy parent unable to resolve his child’s niggling doubts about the coronavirus. She and two friends seek Vaayu’s help. Throughout the comic, the dialogue between Vaayu and children serves to dispel doubts about the nature of the pandemic, its symptoms, and precautions to take.
