“Do children have to stay hospital without their mum and dad?” “Don’t worry, most people will never need to go to hospital. If you need to go to the hospital, you’ll be looked after by the best doctors and your mum and dad can come to see you.” 👩🏻‍⚕️

Great initiative by to have children ask questions they have about the and have the Minsiter for Health answer them directly. Questions have included “Can kids catch the cornovirus?” “What do you need to do when you have it?”
