Title: Overcoming Viruses

Cover story: Viral infections are a major cause of diseases in children. After catching a cold, Beibei, a little boy, developed symptoms including a severe fever, runny nose, sore throat, nasal congestion, and headache. Beibei, it turned out, had been infected by one of the many strangely shaped viruses produced by the red bag in the upper left corner. A doctor gave Beibei a magic little pill, which transformed into dozens of tiny health guards. Armed with swords, they defeated the viruses like brave warriors. After that, Beibei gradually recovered.

Artist: Yushu Liu, a 6-year-old boy, is studying at the Second Affiliated Primary School of Hunan First Normal University. Yushu won the Excellence Award in the Early Childhood group of the 16th National Children’s “Little Artist” Painting and Calligraphy Competition.
