COVID-19 has been declared an international pandemic. While it is necessary to take it seriously, it is important not to panic. Be informed and take the instructions to prevent the spread of the virus seriously: wash your hands with soap regularly, practise social distancing, and seek medical help if you are ill.
Young people are particularly impressionable and vulnerable. They feel things deeply and painful experiences are difficult to deal with. Many people suffer in silence but this debilitating pain, sadness, hurt or feelings of hopelessness prevent them from embracing all that is positive about being young and alive and rob them of the joy that they should be embracing.
