It was only last December that I first heard about the Corona Virus on the news. People were getting critically ill in China. It did not seem too bad at that time. Things have changed since then.
Soon I heard things were very serious in China and Italy also had the virus. In my school the teachers told us to wash our hands regularly to prevent any spread of infections. My school sent plenty of information to my parents reassuring them about it all.
Alhamdolillah we are lucky because Huzooraba also explained things to us. He advised us to pray for mankind and become close to Allah. He also advised us to cover our mouths when we cough or sneeze and for the elderly to stay at home.
Since I have stopped going to school, I have been reading the Holy Quran regularly as I am on the last few siparahs Alhamdulillah. I also do some schoolwork daily and try and play in the garden some of the time. I would like to give my salam to all the other Atfal in the country and tell them not to worry too much, inshAllah with prayers this will be ok.
