Book for Children

Coronavirus - a book for children


The booklet explains what the virus is, how you catch it, and how you can help control it - as well as why some places are closed and what might happen next - and was written with input from Professor Graham Medley at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, as well as two head teachers and a child psychologist.
