The words of Coronavirus - ISS (EN)
School and COVID-19
During the pandemic, documents of interest for schools were produced to support teachers and school operators.
As part of the #leparolevalgono project, the editorial staff of the Treccani portal, in partnership with the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS – Italian National Health Institute), is offering students and teachers who use online platforms, a short and quick vocabulary that is instrumental to reflecting on the correct use of words in the era of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The team singled out a shortlist of keywords, with a clear and detailed definition, that will be useful to understand the current medical emergency caused by the spread of the new Coronavirus.
The key words last entered are accessible at the link (link to the Italian web site).
