Letter to younger sibling giving a description of COVID-19

Suppose, you are Saimun. Your younger brother/sister doesn’t know what COVID-19 is.

Now, write a letter to him/her giving a description of the disease.

Your letter may include how the disease gets transmitted; its symptoms, remedies and preventive measures.

Dear Kritika,
Hope you’re fine by the grace of the Almighty. I’m fine too. I’ve just received your letter in which you wanted to know about the COVID-19 in detail.

Well, COVID means ‘Coronavirus Disease’. The disease spread first in China at the end of 2019, and so, it is termed ‘COVID-19’. It’s a respiratory disease because it attacks our lungs. It’s like the flu, but much more severe. The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette. The most common symptoms include dry cough, high fever, tiredness, losing sense of smell and taste; and less common symptoms are diarrhoea, sore throat, aches, headache, etc. Ultimately, a COVID-19 patient develops difficulty in breathing, chest pain and loss of speech. Though the mortality rate is low. It spreads very fast. Actually, it has no remedy. So, we must take some necessary precautions like washing hands for at least 20 seconds, wearing mask while going out, using hand sanitiser and gloves, etc. Besides boosting our immunity, we should eat healthy dies, drink plenty of liquids and do light exercise. Most importantly, we must maintain social distancing and avoid social gatherings. 

No more today. Give my regards to our parents. Stay home, stay safe.

Your brother
