Just For Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus
Malaka Gharib of the NPR blog Goats and Soda has created a comic that explains COVID-19. It’s based on a radio story that NPR education reporter Cory Turner did. He asked some experts what kids might want to know about the new coronavirus discovered in China.  To make this comic, we’ve used his interviews with Tara Powell at the University of Illinois School of Social Work, Joy Osofsky at the LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans and Krystal Lewis at the National Institute of Mental Health.
Kids, this comic is for you; read it HERE!
