Coronavirus infections, Zika virus, Disabled children, Postmodernism, Mother-child relations, Covid-19


Objective: To comprehend the daily rites of child-mothers with congenital Zika virus syndrome for the prevention of COVID-19 during the pandemic.
Method: Study with a qualitative-exploratory approach, in the light on the comprehensive sociology of Michel Maffesoli, carried out in WhatsApp groups of associations of families of children with the syndrome. 44 mothers answered the online questionnaire between April and May 2020. Lexical and similarity analyzes were used through IRaMuTeQ.
Results: Mothers encourage exercises for child development and help the children’s school activities, watch television, sew, cook, support other mothers on social networks and find satisfaction in not meeting previously established schedules. To prevent COVID-19, mothers adopt physical distance, try to consume healthy foods and intensify hygiene measures.
Final considerations: Child-mothers experience, in physical distance being closer to their children and other mothers through the networks, and adopt preventive care to COVID-19, with care overload.
Keywords: Coronavirus infections. Zika virus. Disabled children. Postmodernism. Mother-child relations. Covid-19.
