Children’s explainer: What does Coronavirus mean for me?

(By Martine Ryholt)

The last few weeks have been unlike any others. Schools and nurseries are closed and many parents are working from home. It’s normal to feel a bit scared when so many changes happen all at once.

Maybe you’ve heard about Coronavirus in the news, from your parents or a friend? It can be difficult to understand what it really means and why we can’t see our friends anymore.

We have put together a video for you, explaining Coronavirus and what it means. You can watch it alone or with your parents. Remember that whatever it is you’re worried about, it is always good to talk about it.
