What is the Coronavirus and what should you do about it?

Monday, March 2, 2020 by David Bowyer | Health & Safety


Don't worry, that's the first thing while coronavirus is of concern, it is important to remember that most people displaying symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat or tiredness are likely suffering with a cold or other respiratory illness—not coronavirus.

That said we're not being blasé about the potential threat. It's important to know the facts and to not get caught up in the media hype. Check out this useful guide from the department of health.
If you, or your children are experiencing a fever, a cough, sore throat, tiredness and shortness of breath then pop down to your GP, it could just be a cold but at least you'll have nipped it in the bud.

At Kidko it is always our aim to practice good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene and encouraging our students to do the same.
