Coronavirus and kids March 2020

Rick and Dr. Sarah talk though the concerns parents have over Coronavirus (Covid-19) in children in an extra episode of Crib Notes. They discuss keeping your children healthy, the signs of Coronavirus and the importance of social distancing.

This episode was recorded in early March. Some information has become out of date as evidence, knowledge of the disease and guidelines have evolved. Please keep up to date with the NHS website.

Please remember the discussion in this episode is not medical advice. If you have any concerns regarding your child please do seek professional medical attention. This episode discusses Coronavirus, not fever in general, and remember that for any child under 3 months with fever you must seek medical attention. The information discussed is the opinions of individuals and not the organisations they work for.
