URGENT! The World Health Organisation (WHO) has now classified COVID-19 as a pandemic. The WHO Director-General when announcing this decision noted “describing the situation as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the threat posed by this virus. It doesn’t change what WHO is doing, and it doesn’t change what countries should do”.
- Remind children about hand washing and good hygiene as well as ensuring children who are sick don’t come to school.
- You will appreciate the importance of giving children factual, age-appropriate information about COVID-19 so that they can feel informed and in control. The link below will help you have those conversations – Talking to children about coronavirus
A very useful video you may wish to watch with your children to help better understand the virus is: Nanogirl video clip which has a great explanation for kids about coronavirus
