Do you know what COVID-19 means?
19 is for the year we discovered this virus.
D is for Disease. Remember, COVID-19 is the name of the disease while SARS-CoV-2 is the name of the virus!
CO is for Corona which means “crown” in Spanish. Can you detect a crown shape in this picture of the virus?
VI is for Virus. There are millions of viruses in our planet! Some of them are very nice to humans, while others can be harmful, this is why we need to treat them with respect!
Following the above logic, what would be the name of a disease caused by a ROtavirus found in the year 2035?
Did you know you can help reduce the spread of COVID? Follow these simple steps and be a COVID-19 HERO!
Stay home and away from others if you are sick!
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds! Scrub the front and back of each hand, and don’t forget between your fingers!
To keep track of the time, you can sing the Happy Birthday song 2 times while washing your hands and thinking about your upcoming birthday presents.
Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue. Remember to wash your hands right after!
Keep your distance! Stay 2 meters away from anyone you don’t live with. How long are 2 meters? 2 kid’s bikes, a hockey stick or a kayak are all good references!
Stay connected! Keeping in touch with our friends and family is very important to preserve our mental health. You can send emails, texts, or even write letters to communicate with your loved ones!
Remember! YOU play a very important role to curb the spread of COVID-19!
