While releasing the comic, Bandore said that in the current scenario, concerns of children should be addressed on time to avoid any panic among them.
Mandeep Singh Brar, deputy commissioner of Chandigarh said, “Providing information to children in the form of comics is a good step.”
Key topics covered in comics include proper hand washing steps, use of homemade cloth masks, teaching social distancing, motivation for kids, procedures for online study and useful links including eVIDYA of MHRD.
