Ammachi’s Amazing Advice
Written and illustrated by Rajiv Eipe
Sooraj and I are staying safe at home, and we hope that you are too. Especially if you’re feeling unwell.
If either of us has a fever, a cough or difficulty breathing, we will first call up our doctor or the government helpline and then follow their instructions. Only a doctor can tell if what we have is COVID-19.
I felt a little sick yesterday, but only because I ate too many uniappams.
