Staying home is important for a few reasons right now. The Coronavirus is completely new and the doctors and scientists are still learning about the illness it causes (COVID-19), how it spreads from person to person, and how to treat and cure people who catch it. The virus affects people differently, some people get it and don’t even know they have it because they don’t get sick. Others get a little sick while some people get really sick and need to go to the hospital for help getting better. By staying home we reduce the number of people who catch the virus and get sick. This helps reduce the number of people who get really sick and need to go to the hospital so that the doctors and nurses don’t get overwhelmed with patients.
