Many elderly people have been forced to self-isolate during the COVID-19 pandemic as they are more vulnerable to the disease.
On Sunday, Ben Fordham shared a picture to Instagram of his children social distancing from their grandmother to protect her from potentially being infected.
In the cute-but-heartbreaking snap, two of Ben’s children – Freddy, five, and Pearl, three – blew kisses to their grandmother as they ate lunch on a seperate table.

‘I know as Australians we tend to think, “Oh mate, she’ll be right. We can just kind of do it our own way” but it’s just not the time for that,’ Ben said in the clip.
The clip also featured Channel Nine entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, who recently tested positive for coronavirus.
