1 Million People Die from COVID-19 – level 1

07-10-2020 07:00

The coronavirus or COVID-19 starts in China nine months ago. The number of people dead from COVID-19 reaches one million now. More than 33 million people get sick in all of the world.

The situation is very serious. The leader of United Nations speaks in public. He says that people and countries must help each other.

One million is a very big number. People stop thinking about every single life. However, every dead person is somebody’s family or friend.

Nobody knows when people will stop the sickness. However, it helps if people follow governments’ rules. It is important not to go to crowded places. People must wear masks and wash their hands.

Difficult words: reach (to get somewhere or something), in public (in front of people), crowded (a place with many people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
