As coronavirus is spreading across the world, people are isolating themselves from public interactions and keeping themselves and their loved ones safe in their houses . Children don't understand this in great detail but their lives are also getting impacted by it. Schools are shut, kids are staying at home, parents avoid sending them to the playground and also avoiding to go to crowded places like kids’ zones, malls etc.
