English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: HYGERRIG-NEWS!–March 14, 2020 –
“Press Conference” by Danish Prime Minister for children on coronavirus
Ema (12 years old)
Can I go out even during coronavirus quarantine?
You can go out, but rather please go out. For example, it is very good to take a walk in the forest or in nature. However, remember to keep away from each other.
Mary (13 years old)
Is it likely that the quarantine period (currently set for two weeks) will be longer?
We cannot give a definite answer now, but we will tell you, your children and your school teachers as soon as we know.
If my grandma gets infected, will she die?
You don’t need to be afraid, but please take care of people around you, especially the elderly and help each other.
Next Wednesday I’m going to have a birthday party outdoors together with my four friends (whose birthdays are close to mine) by inviting 22 other friends. Can I do that? Or should I cancel it?
First of all, Happy Birthday! You are planning to invite 22 people. Sorry to say, but 22 people are too many to get together at once. I recommend that you put off a birthday party.
Andreas (reporter of children’s news program)
If you get infected, what would you do?
It is possible that I will get infected. In that case, I’m going to do my job as prime minister while I self-quarantine. (while staying at home)
