5 year old Mylie Malcolm, an aspiring actress from Wednesfield and a big fan of the Wizard of Oz, has taken to video in her favourite witches’ costume to deliver a clear message for everybody during the coronavirus outbreak – stay at home until the world gets back to normal, or she will get you!
As well as helping raise awareness of the importance of staying at home, she has also helped teach her 2 year old brother, Travis, how to wash his hands properly and keep the germs away.
Mylie’s video message can be seen on You Tube.
Her mum Kirsty Evans said: “I am so proud of how Mylie is handling the whole situation and continues to bring joy to those around her. We really hope everyone can continue listening to Mylie’s and the government’s advice to help save lives.”
Mylie said: “It is very important to stay at home because sharing is not caring if you make somebody very poorly. When the world is back to normal everybody can play with their friends again.”
Meanwhile, children and staff at Northwood Park Primary School have created a musical video about staying in at this difficult time, inspired by Disney's Frozen. It can also be found on You Tube and features pupils and staff sharing positive messages and reinforcing the Government's advice to stay at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "It's great that the Government's social distancing messages are getting across to people in Wolverhampton, young and old, and even more so that children are sharing them with their friends – please heed this advice, stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives."
The latest information and guidance around coronavirus is available at GOV.UK and on the council’s own coronavirus pages at Coronavirus advice and information.
