Local waste management company, Averda, has created free animated videos aimed at keeping young children aware of how to protect themselves against coronavirus. 

The PSAs are available in English, isiZulu and Sesotho, and features two adorable characters, a little boy named Glad and his furry friend, Vad. 

"We hope it makes some kind of contribution towards preparing families to better protect themselves against the pandemic, and that this video will be a useful part of that (online) toolbox," Averda told Parent24. 

The video includes information on handwashing, social distancing and coughing and sneezing etiquette in a child-friendly way. Watch the Sotho version below:
