But ajji what is a virus?
Viruses are a type of germ.
Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very tiny,
and when they get inside your body,
they can make you sick.
Ohhh! But what if we fall sick?
How do we know if we have
If you have any of these
signs you should immediately go to a doctor.
Finding it Fever
But how do we protect ourselves from coronavirus?
Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid, we just have to follow few simple things like....
Remembering to always wash our hands.
Not just when they are dirty. But....
After coming home from outside.
Maintaining distance from each other.
We can see our friends but,
not hug them or
shake hands with them.
Our teacher also told us to wear masks.
Yes, it is important, especially when you notice any of the
signs or whenever it
is necessary to step out of the house.
So we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out at all?
What about the puppies we play with everyday?
You can still feed the puppies while wearing masks and
maintaining a safe distance.
Ajji, let us stay
inside our houses and help fight coronavirus !
So, it is time to
make a new list of things we can do indoors !!
