JK Rowling: Releasing iCabog gave me a sense of purpose during the lockdown
JK Rowling says writing Icabog during the epidemic gave him “purposefulness” because he was concerned about the effects of the coronavirus on families.
The Harry Potter writer told BBC Radio 2 that he was inspired to publish children’s books because he thought “how difficult it was for children’s families.”
It has been a “terrible year for all,” he said.
Discussing his book, he added: “It gave me a special idea of purposeful thinking, ‘It can help, it can do something’, because I am married to a doctor who makes you feel very inadequate when there is an epidemic. On.
“I see my family members who are the main staff come out of there and face them all. At the same time I was very proud of everyone but I was worried for them.”
Rowling said she was very aware of the challenges some families faced.
“All I know is how difficult it was going to be for families of young children and especially for families without gardens.
“Caring for young children is really intense, if they don’t have a play date.
“I just thought, ‘It’s going to be very difficult for people,’ and that’s when I thought I could do something.”
He added: “It gave me something under lockdown that I could never have had otherwise, it was so inspiring.”
A vaccine will make ‘no difference’ to the current wave

The next two weeks are ‘important’ to ensure the end of the lockdown – experts
“December 22” will be extremely difficult to ensure the end of the coronavirus lockdown in England in the next two weeks, as a scientific adviser has warned.
Professor Susan Mishi, scientific advisory member of the Emergency (SJ) government, has urged the public to “stay in position” to spend festive time with loved ones, to prevent them from breaking current rules.
He further suggested that the announcement of a potential Covid-19 vaccine could lead to complacency in these measures, adding that Jab would make “no difference” to the current wave.
It came after documents released by the SEZ on Friday warned that coronavirus restrictions would see a resurgence of infections returning to the tiered system.
Asked what the current restrictions should be when the lockdown ends, Professor Mishi told BBC Radio 4’s Today program: “It’s not too early to know. I think the next two weeks are going to be absolutely crucial.
“Those two weeks are going to be very challenging, partly because of the weather, because I think the promise of a vaccine can make people complacent.
“But the vaccine is unlikely to arrive until the end of the year or the beginning of next year and it is going to make a difference in the current second wave.
“So I think for the next two weeks, everyone really needs to get all their resolutions together.”
World Update: Greece tightens lockdown
Greek authorities have tightened the nationwide lockdown following the escalation of the coronavirus case, announcing the closure of nurseries and primary schools until the end of November.
Greece has performed better than many European countries in dealing with the epidemic, originally starting a nationwide lockdown in February, just weeks after its outbreak.
The declining rate of infection in early October has forced authorities to reinstate the obligation and order a second nationwide lockdown, which ends in late November and includes a night curfew from 9pm to 8am.
On Saturday, the government tightened measures, closing primary schools and nurseries for two weeks from Monday.
There were 3,036 new Covid-19 cases in Greece yesterday. On Thursday it recorded 3,316 new infections and 50 deaths – the highest daily toll recorded so far in the epidemic.

Austria will take action on the entire lockdown from Tuesday, as the epidemic continues across Europe.
The Austrian government still used a light touch in dealing with the second wave of coronavirus cases compared to the first.
The country currently has a nighttime curfew, with shops open from 8pm to 6am, while cafes, bars and restaurants are restricted to removal.
These measures have failed to stop the infection from accelerating. Yesterday recorded 9,586 new cases every day – nine times more than the peak of the first wave.
According to a plan seen by Reuters, since Tuesday the country has begun to move into a full lockdown, the public will only have to sit at home all day without some exceptions, such as shopping or practice.
Non-essential stores will be closed, as will service providers such as hairdressers. Secondary schools have already begun to move towards socially distance education, but still schools for younger schools will do the same when providing child care in need.
Chancellor Sebastian Kurz will hold a press conference outlining the new restrictions at 3:30 p.m.
