The original manga has inspired various spinoffs, including Shigemitsu Harada and Issei Hatsuyoshiya's Cells at Work! Code Black (Hataraku Saibō Black)

To think the spin-off will be longer at 8 volumes while this one will only be 6...

Well, it seems now I have a reason to start reading it now! Still, kinda ballsy for the authoress to have the final chapter tackle COVID of all things. I don't know how well that'll go for audiences, but hey, I'm all for it! I personally love it when anime and manga get topical!

Cells at Work has always been focused on how the human body responds to infection/disease so I’m not surprised that COVID19 would also be addressed, especially when scientist have been able to learn quite a few things about the virus and the disease it causes. Given that one of the causes of severe COVID19 disease is problems with the body’s immune response, I wonder if we’ll see White Blood Cell go haywire along with the other immune cells and attack Red Blood Cell and other cell types...that would certainly make for a nice bit of drama for the story to close out on, given how friendly these two have grown to be over the past volumes.

Can't think of something more relevant for the series to close out on than Covid.

I just hope it wouldn't be insensitive to all the people who've lost someone this year to COVID. Then again, Shimizu-san handle cancer well enough...
