    Thanks for this post and well done for researching. As the coronavirus is a very fast-moving virus and the reports are too, it's important to 1. Say where you found the numbers so that everyone can check them out and make sure they are correct and 2. Include the time and date of when the numbers were published, as they might change very fast!

        I use it as well it is very precise and I am shocked of the amount of cases in Africa as the malaria is still carrying on

    The Coronavirus is affecting the whole country, the country has been placed on lock down. This means that you can not go out unless you need to pick up medicine or food, to look after vulnerable people. You are allowed to go out for 1 hour exercise a day with people who live with you. If you are a key worker such as a nurse or a teacher and a supermarket worker you are allowed to continue working.

    i like this idea its will help lots of people know what is happening around the world and surprised me that only 4% of cases are serious . This will help lots of people learn not to worry too much about the coronavirus and has answered lots of peoples questions about what is happening in the world right now.

      I think the % that are serious is changing all the time and it's best to always consult news sources such as the BBC for the most up to date.

    The coronavirus is a virus which is the reason that we are stuck inside today. There are lots of rumours going around about how it was born. I believe that it was a virus in bats first but then it became a virus which can affect the human body. It started to spread when a market in China were not very clean. They didn’t wash their hands before they touched the food. When the virus became a thing, other countries got to work with creating plans to reduce the spread. Lots of people in England were getting angry because we were not producing a plan of action immediately. When the first couple of deaths occurred, it started to get a bit more serious. We were all told to wash our hands a lot more than usual, don’t touch our faces and to contain all coughs and sneezes into tissues or our elbows. The next step was telling everyone to only go out if necessary (not just to go out and buy sweets or a can of coke!) This still wasn’t slowing down the spread, so we came to where we are today, with schools shut and only being allowed out once a day for exercise or to buy absolute essentials from the shops (like medication or food for the week.) If we do go out, we must stay at least 2m away from people from a different household. I agree with how slowly we took this approach because if we took it before, people would get bored and go out when the virus reaches its worst. So far, people that I have seen have been doing the right thing, but it has been said that people have been going against the rule’s for fun. We should all follow the rules to keep our country safe. Despite the fact that it’s annoying staying inside all the time, it’s for the best! I am feeling sad because I’m not allowed to go to school. Both of my parents are key workers, but because they can work from home, so we have made the decision to not go to school to reduce the risk of people getting the virus. I am also very sad that I can not meet up with my friends or see my grandparents for a while, but at least we can facetime!
    Stay Home!
    Protect the NHS!
    Save lives! 😊

      We don't know exactly how it started in China, so it's best not to make broad statements about it! Thank you for sharing your experiences!
