What is CoronaVirus?
Coronavirus is a type of virus that is known to cause a pandemic respiratory illness as Covid 19 symptoms, and they are highly contagious. It is assumed that this virus could have originated in animals and then mutated to cause disease in humans. One reportedly showed the symptoms within the fourteen days of exposure to this virus, and the infected person is contagious up to 20 days after they expose the symptoms. But the period purely depends on the individual's immunity level. Covid-19 got its name from CO from coronavirus, VI from virus and D for disease with 19 as it was first reported in the year 2019.

Covid 19 Preventive measures for Kids
The preventive measures one should take for kids to protect them from getting infected are mentioned below.
Wear a mask that follows the safety protocols and guidelines. Any kid above two years of age should wear a mask to safeguard his/her health. This prevents and controls the spread. Also, take care to store, clean and dispose of the mask properly. All these include cleaning the hands well before touching the mask and also after taking it off. Store them in a clean plastic bag and wash them regularly if they are made of fabric material. If it is a medical mask, dispose of them in a trash bin without giving second thoughts. This will make the job more effective and prevent unnecessary infection through these external protective factors. Most importantly, make sure that the mask covers the nose, mouth, and chin and prevents using a mask with valves. Reports have stated that the virus is capable of moving ten meters in aerosols, and hence kids are highly recommended to wear double masks to reduce the transmission.
Avoid going and playing in spaces that are enclosed and crowded. Reports have shown that places like play areas with indoor settings with proximity between kids have higher transmission risks. Therefore, little ones should stay home and stay safe.
Clean the hands frequently with hand wash or rub them with alcohol-based sanitisers. This eliminates the germs and viruses from the hands and entering the system.
Educate the kids to cover the nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing. Teach them to dispose of tissues into the trash.
Always keep telling them to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth with dirty or contaminated hands.
Clean and disinfect all their toys and books regularly to keep them safe from the virus.
