Avoid Living in a Virus Pandemic!

by Anne Rooney, David Antram
Get ready… this is a fast-paced guide to pandemics like the COVID-19 coronavirus. It looks at aspects of pandemics including how viruses infect the body, the human immune system, and the wonders of vaccination. Get tips from the experts, such as:

• Don't believe everything you read online! Check the science, and don’t share wacky ideas—they can be dangerous.
• A face covering helps to protect people from disease. It traps some of the water droplets that carry germs.
• Germs can survive for a while on surfaces, so it's important to keep your hands clean by washing them thoroughly with soap.
• During a pandemic, try to avoid crowded places, such as big events or public transportation.
