One sunny day, I was sitting in the backyard playing with my younger sister. Suddenly, my grandparents called me inside and told me about a virus called Corona Virus that has come from China.
They told me that my school will remain closed for a long period of time and I can't even go and play with my friends. I was shocked when I saw the news about Corona Virus. The news showed lany people who were infected with Corona Virus and have died in China.
I quickly ran to my mother and asked how this virus originated?
My mother told me that this virus originated in Wuhan, China. Once bats were eating some fruits, the part of which fell on tje ground and was eaten by pigs. The mix of secretions of these animals created this virus .This transferred to human beings when they slaughtered pigs.
She also told le that this is a highly contagious virus and therefore can be easily transmitted from one person to another.
I immediately asked my mother if we can do something to stop its spread?
She told me to wash hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds. Avoid close contact with the people who are sick, coughing or sneezing. Also disinfect frequently touched objects.
I have been following these instructions very carefully and have taught my younger sister and siblings as well.
Playing with my little sister, online studying with my teacher, doing yoga with my father, learning Spanish with my mother and doing Bharatnatyam from YouTube has kept me busy and happy.
Stay home!! Stay safe!!
Fight against Corona Virus!!
God bless us!!!
