  1. I read the story it has taught me new things about the corona virus and I know another fact it is to stay away from old people and people who are coughing and sneezing near you.

  2. Thank you for sharing this, Mr Patel. I had just come on to post it.
    I will be looking at this with my son and daughter tonight – it looks like it will help them to understand more about coronavirus.
