Dave the Dog is Worried about Coronavirus

 A Southampton intensive care nurse has created a book to help reduce anxiety in children caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. The free online publication, entitled ‘Dave the Dog is worried about coronavirus’, has already been downloaded 15,000 times and has received plenty of positive feedback. The book was written by Molly Watts, a staff nurse on the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Southampton Children’s Hospital, who penned it after a nightshift last week.

The book for children and aims to give information without fear. With everything that is going on at the moment; big changes to children’s routines and lots of stories on the news it can be a really scary time for them. This book aims to open up the conversation about coronavirus and some of the things they might be hearing about it and provide truthful information in a reassuring and child friendly manner.
