Who's afraid of the big bad virus? Children discuss Covid-19

What do children make of the coronavirus? How much of the endless stream of information that has bombarded us for the past three weeks do they understand? Are they afraid of the big bad Covid-19? Chiara Pastorini, philosopher and organiser of philosophy workshops for children, brought together a small group of children aged 5-12 to discuss the virus via the videoconferencing software Zoom. I followed the discussion and took notes; the result is this comic strip. 3 April 2020
