What is Covid-19?
Know the facts
Covid-19, is a strain of 'Coronavirus' that affects people's lungs.
This enters your body and behaves similarly to the flu.
The symptoms are:
A new continuous cough
A high temperature
People that are most at risk are those with underlying health conditions.
The best ways you can prevent the spread of Covid-19 are:
Wash your hands thoroughly and often, with soap and warm water, for at least 20 seconds.
Try not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth.
Try to keep 2 metres away from other people.
If you are worried and want some further advice, you can visit 111.nhs.uk and follow their steps.
If you're struggling, try these conversation starters:
- I want to tell you something, but I don't know how.
- This is hard for me to say, but I have something important to tell you.
- I need some advice on something I’m stressed about.
Sometimes it’s hard to know how to bring up a difficult issue. So you could do it by talking about something else that mentions the issue you want to talk about. It could be anything, like Facebook, TV, a book, or even something at school. For instance:
If you're finding it hard to mention your anorexia, you could say:
- What do you think about that person on Hollyoaks who is anorexic?
If you're finding it difficult to mention that somebody hits you, you could say:
- Today at school we talked about what domestic violence is.
If you don't know how to mention that you feel low all the time, you could try asking:
- Have you seen that show on TV about depression?
If you don't think that you could do this just yet, you could speak confidentially to somebody online!
