President Moon Jae-in offered a virtual tour of his office for kids Tuesday, as a replacement for an annual Children's Day event on the Blue House lawn, due to the coronavirus.
 
Moon and first lady Kim Jung-sook participated in the production of a special video clip using the format of Minecraft, a popular sandbox video game.
 
With recordings of their voices and messages inserted as Minecraft characters, the clip features a tour of the Blue House and a press briefing by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the country's response to Covid-19.
 
Moon pointed out that children nationwide have been kept out of school for months.
 
"We are overcoming the coronavirus thanks to your patience," the president said. "Please remember that just as you do, adults are endeavoring to beat the virus we are going through for the first time. We all are heroes."
 
The first lady reminded kids that washing their hands and wearing masks are a few of the very important methods to combat the virus.
 
The Blue House said it would also release footage with English subtitles for children in foreign countries.
