Screen Shot 2020-03-30 at 21.12.34.pngBecause COVID-19 is causing confusion and anxiety we’ve developed a simple online COVID-19 Game that offers the facts (from UK government and NHS sources). It’s free-to-play and works on any device through a web browser. It only takes couple of minutes and there is no registration required.

Please share the link however you wish. It’s intended for anyone and everyone:  https://games.focusgames.co.uk/coronavirus/game/

The game is being played by adults and older children and here is some feedback from a teacher in Egypt:

I teach grade 8 students (14 years). My students are in COVID-19 isolation and their response to eLearning was disappointing. I needed to attract their attention.  We were exploring diseases in populations and I sent them the COVID-19 Game. It was like magic! Within 2 hours they were sending selfies of their scores, encouraging others to play and sharing information. The students were engaged, they learned and were entertained. Thank you. Haidy Wael, Science Teacher, Egypt.

If anyone in the network wants to discuss making a version specific to their country/region we’d be happy to discuss it.

Regards, Andy
