Angelina Jolie is set to help kids learn more about the coronavirus pandemic.

Jolie is acting as executive producer on the upcoming “BBC My World: Coronavirus” special, which will be released on the BBC World YouTube channel soon.

The educational content will allow young people to understand more about the virus and hear others in lockdown around the world.

Jolie says in a statement, “Children have not been out of school on this scale since the Second World War. This is something that, throughout their lifetimes, they will remember.

“It is something that older generations, for all their other reference points, have not experienced,” she adds, according to the Daily Mail.

Mother-of-six Jolie continues, “The way children go through this time – from the tools and information they can access to the ways they can communicate to and help each other – will be unique to their generation.”

“We want to help kids to have access to trusted content and tools that will be useful to them during the pandemic – including helping them to seek out fact-based and reliable news, question the information they receive, and learn from each other’s experiences.”

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
