During this week, Youtube channel CNTV Infanil and TV Educa Chile will release a children’s series entitled “Invisible Bugs”, giving children from all over Chile an opportunity to express their feelings, questions, experiences, opinions, and thoughts on the coronavirus pandemic.
We must remember that, for most people in the world, the expansion of COVID-19 has brought in compulsory quarantines, resulting in many changes in daily activities such as transportation, work, and school.
On top of that, the pandemic has not discriminated against anybody on grounds of age, gender, or social condition, which is why all of us have been affected by it in some way or another. In this context, we have not heard much from the little ones, who have been forced to face this new and surprising “abnormality.” For this reason, the new TV series “Invisible Bugs” seeks to give Chilean children a voice while propagating their views and opinions.
“Invisible Bugs” will be available from August 14 on the YouTube channel CNTV Infantil. Beyond that, it will be premiered by TV Educa on Sunday, August 16 in the framework of Children’s day celebrations.
It should be noted that “Invisible Bugs” is a co-production of Fundación Ciencia & Vida and the children’s television department at the National Television Council with support from the Centro Interdisciplinario de Neurociencia de Valparaíso (CINV), the Millennium Institute on Immunology and Immunotherapy (IMII), the Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO), the Millennium Institute for Integrative Biology (iBio), the Institute for Child Neuroprotection (INPI), the Center for Biotechnology and Bioengineering (CeBiB), the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM), Universidad Autónoma de Chile, Universidad de los Andes, Merken, Molinos de Norte, AndesDrip, BioHydro, Razmilic Spa, Concepción Risueño, Marisa Weintraub, María Elena Navarro, and Cetna Skorin.
