During lockdown, an Iowa native has created a video game to help raise money to fight the coronavirus.

The game is called "Call of Corona" and it comes out Friday. It can be played on Steam for $3.99 and all of the money will go to the World Health Organization.

Max Ward, of Des Moines, Iowa, said he came up with the idea after he was furloughed in London when the city went on lockdown. The goal of the game is to save a famous actor from COVID-19. Players "are the pill treating the patient," he explained.

Ward said he doesn't recommend students to use this game to study biology since it's just for fun. He hopes to raise $1,000 toward coronavirus relief.
