Coronavirus is a virus that started in China.

It spread to many countries in Europe

and all around the world.


Coronavirus is also called COVID-19.

This is the name of the disease.

People with the Coronavirus disease have:

  • a high temperature
  • a cough
  • a short breath

Please keep in mind that if you feel this way

it doesn’t mean that you have the Coronavirus disease for sure.

It can also be a normal flu.

You can call the emergency number for Coronavirus in your country

and explain how you feel.

Call only if you really think

you may have the disease.

There are some things you can do

to not get the Coronavirus disease.

For example:

  • wash your hands often

with soap and water

and for 20 seconds at least


  • do not touch your face

if your hands are not clean


  • cough and sneeze in a tissue

and then throw the tissue away


  • stay home as much as possible.

The situation of Coronavirus can be different

depending on the country you live in.

Governments are taking different actions

in every country.
