Discover along with eight-year-old Kelly the science behind the COVID-19 illness, viral transmission, basic epidemiology, and social distancing needed to protect your kids and community. Dr. Lauren Block MD MPH, a primary care physician and medical educator and Dr. Adam Block PhD, a health economist and public health professor, are parents of three curious kids.
After months treating COVID-19 patients in New York City this is what we teach our children about the science behind the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the only children's book that goes into depth on the science behind the spread of coronavirus, how the virus causes the symptoms it does, and how vaccines contribute to herd immunity. You and your children will understand why the virus spreads so rapidly, how handwashing and social distancing can prevent transmission, how kids can help others during the pandemic, how people who become ill are treated in the hospital, and how you can protect your family from infection.
