Since the beginning of January The Ministry of Public Health’s preliminary data showed that 51 children died, 39 of them were younger than 5 years, and only 12 were aged 5 years and over.

Children even if they are infected with coronavirus are less violent than adults or the elderly But the importance is more because if born in a normal child not acceptable Absolutely can’t make up my mind We value children’s lives, so everyone must help each other to protect the lovely lives of children. especially children under 5 years old
