The Indian Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has come up with an unique idea to spread awareness of COVID-19 amongst kids.
The Ministry has come up with a graphic novel for children, named ‘Kids, Vaayu, and Corona’.
Aaditya Khaiwal, Vof Ankur School in Chandigarh and Lakshya Khaiwal from Chitkara International School, Chandigarh have helped with the story line. Sonali Verma and Shruti Govil of Punjab University were in charge of the graphics.
The school kids as well as Anchita Thakur and Kirti Dutt of the Punjab University have contributed to the content of the comic book.
Here are some pictures from the book:
Dr. Ravindra Khaiwal, Additional Professor of Environment Health Department of Community Medicine and Dr. Suman Mor, Associate Professor and Chairperson Department of Environment Studies created the comic book to make children aware of the threat of coronavirus and how to remain safe through simple precautionary steps.
Health Minister is also planning to translate this book into various Indian languages.
