The webinar was held as Arion Swiss-Belhotel Bandung’s concern for the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in children. The number of children infected recently has made parents extremely frightened and worried. The outside world seems to be no longer a safe place for their children to play and learn. The severe mental health impacts on children due to the restrictions on social interaction and isolation are also prone to happen.
