Children and Older Adults
It is normal to feel fearful and anxious during this time. Talking about your feelings will lessen your distress. #MentalHealth #coronavirus #COVID19
FACT: #COVID19 IS NOT transmitted through houseflies
Talking about COVID-19
Talk to your children about #COVID19. It’s hard for them not to hear about it. Silence & secrets do not protect our children. Honesty & openness do. Think about how much they will understand. You know them best.
Keep calm and manage stress
Crowded and messy home? Kids crying? Teenagers screaming? Back-to-back online meetings? Take a deep breath. Take a break. Do something for yourself. Take care of yourself so you can take care of your children
Keeping it positive
Praise is powerful. Try praising your child or teenager for something they have done well. And do it in a genuine way. They may not show it, but you’ll see them doing that good thing again.
Catch bad behavior
Catch bad behaviour early and redirect your kids' attention from a bad to a good behaviour. Clear, positive instructions get us the behaviour that we want. Swap ‘don’t make a mess’ for ‘please put away your pens’
Structure up
Exercise helps kids with a lot of energy (and adults) to de-stress when we #StayAtHome. Let your child choose the music and have a 10-minute dance! You might even impress them with your moves!
One-on-One Time
Try taking 20 minutes doing something the kids choose – like playing a game or reading - together with them. No phone or TV so you can focus on them. Quality time will make them feel safe and loved.
Stay Positive and Healthy
For all older adults & people with underlying health conditions who have to #StayHome, don't forget to: - Be physically active & mentally positive - Be socially connected via phone calls or social media - Be informed by local health authorities & WHO
When to seek medical care
For adults over 60 & people with underlying conditions, it is vital to: - Check for common symptoms - Keep your family/friends informed if you need assistance - Seek medical care immediately, if you have difficulty breathing. Call first, if possible.
Keep your distance
For those over 60 & people with underlying health conditions, keeping your physical distance is advised. - Stay at least 1 meter away from others - Decline visits during the #COVID19 outbreak - Alternatively, socialize by phone everyday with friends or family

A milestone for South Korea as high school seniors head back to school today. Temperature checks, hand sanitizer and social distancing now the norm. A phased reopening to lower grades over coming weeks.

South Korea starts reopening schools after the spread of the coronavirus slowed

ForbesAsia 18 hours ago shared via Twitter
South Korea closes 10 kindergartens and five elementary schools after a 6-year-old boy tests positive for the coronavirus.

Another reason this is a good plan: All it took for South Korea to backslide after reducing the threat of the coronavirus and reopening was one guy who decided to take a go clubbing. He infected 100 people. That's a scenario that could easily unfold here.

AP May 21
South Korea reports 20 new cases of the coronavirus, including nine in the densely populated Seoul metropolitan area, as authorities scramble to stem transmissions as they proceed with a phased reopening of schools.

will be even worse, people dancing in clouds of recirculating water-droplets. Just one man visited five nightclubs and infected 7,200 people. The exact same thing will happen to clubbers when the government reopens .

ForeignPolicy May 23
South Korea’s response to the coronavirus is among the most effective in the world. But after one clubgoer spawned 86 new cases, it’s clear that opening a country back up will always carry risk if there’s no vaccine.

MikeOtsuka May 22
Even when the rate of daily detected infections is zero for three consecutive days, as it recently was in South Korea, the one and only detected infection on the fourth day can lead to 80 more infections.

MakhotsoG May 21
Or in South Korea where within hours of reopening, dozens of schools in Incheon, a city near the capital Seoul, were forced to shut again after two students tested positive for coronavirus.

dmac5dmark2 May 24
Foreign Minister of Kang Kyung-wha says that her country may be reopening, but life won’t be the same. “We’re not going to go back to life pre-COVID. This risk is there."

How come they have theatre in South Korea? Maybe we (UK government) could/should learn from others!

frilar May 23
Wow Brian really doesn't understand science! It's not about the media. This is from a country that actually had widespread testing and tracing, neither of which we do. You can scream fake news into the void all you want, the virus can't hear you.

South Korea reported new cases of COVID in high schools after reopening (). What if these happens in churches? Would the churches take responsibility? What if they infect other people? Would the churches take responsibility?
