Corona Virus Through A Childs Eyes | Q&A With Cuba aged 8

Blogger Kate of @Confessions of a new mummy spotted this fun Q&A on facebook so, I instantly asked my almost 8 year old son Cuba if he’d like to take part. He Kindly obliged and here are his answers.


What is Coronavirus?

It is a very infectious virus.


Who is the Prime Minister?

Boris Johnson, A very bad one!


How many weeks have we been in lockdown?    

8 weeks.


Do you want to go back to school?

Kind of, I can’t make my mind up if I want to go back.


Who is the first person you are going to hug when lockdown ends?    

I might hug Olivia or Samuel [Cuba’s half brother and sister]

Where is the first place you want to go after lockdown?

Swimming, Mac Donalds or KFC I can’t decide.


What do you think we can do to get rid of the Corona virus?

Stay at home and don’t ever ever go school while lockdown is on.


 Is Mummy a good teacher?

No, you don’t know anything about teaching. [thanks Cuba!!!]


How did the Corona Virus start?

I think it originally came from animals probably in China.


If you had to wear protective clothing to help you what would it be?

Masks or a Hazmat suit.


Are you enjoying lockdown?

Im not sure,  I’m kind of am enjoying it because I’m not at school and i’m kind of not enjoying it because you make me do work at home.


We had fun going through the questionnaire and it will be interesting for Cuba himself to reflect back on in the future.  I think he did a good job answering all of the questions and it has given me a direct insight into where his perspective is on the virus.


Thanks Cuba for taking part,


Love you a million trillion,


Mummy x x x
