Dear parents,

We are happy to share with you the last group of words in our COVID-19 Dictionary for Children. This edition aims to inform each child that COVID-19 can be fought by different sectors working together.

Included also are the new terminologies from WHO and DOH that are now being used to classify COVID-19 cases. We encourage you to discuss these words together with the third cluster of terms (What is the process used to find out if a person has COVID-19?) to help children better understand what is being done to identify those with the COVID-19 disease.

You may download a copy of the dictionary at

Thank you very much!
