Runners and Coronavirus – level 1

27-04-2020 15:00

People like to run outside. However, they are afraid of the coronavirus. People do not know if it is safe to run outside.

Health experts think that running outside is safe. Experts recommend people to be careful and responsible. People must stay at home if they do not feel good. It is important to wear a face mask if there are a lot of other people outside. The mask helps stop the virus.

The risk that runners get the coronavirus from each other is small. The wind around people moves when they run. The wind takes the virus away.

Experts say that the sun kills the coronavirus. It is safer to be outside when it is sunny.

Difficult words: recommend (to say a good idea to do something), careful (when someone does not want to make a mistake), responsible (when someone thinks of the risks that can happen), risk (how possible something good or bad can happen).

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