The answers are the words highlighted in bold below:

  1. Some people with Covid-19 are asymptomatic. They do not have any symptoms at all.
    1. asymptomatic = without symptoms showing.
    2. the word “symptoms” should be plural. It’s a countable following the word “any”.
  2. People working on the front line should have adequate PPE.
    1. This expression uses “the”.
  3. Whether people develop long term immunity after having had the virus is still debatable.
    1. the word “immunisation” is about inoculations and isn’t suitable for this sentence.
  4. In some countries lockdown measures are being eased gradually.
    1. This is one word = “lockdown”
  5. The first human trials for a vaccine are underway.
  6. At times like this, you really need to keep your chin up.
    1. “to keep your chin up” is an idiomatic expression about keeping positive.
  7. Some countries are deciding on quarantine rules for people entering the country from abroad.
  8. While some countries are seeing fatalities go down, other countries are seeing an increase.
    1. This was a tricky one. You can’t have “death numbers” because in English the correct expression is “number of deaths”. You can’t have “death toll” because you would need the article “the” in the sentence (“the death toll”). You can’t have “death” because you would need the plural form “deaths”. So the only possible option which is grammatically correct is “fatalities”.
  9. This pandemic is revealing people’s altruistic traits.
    1. None of the other words are grammatically suitable for this sentence.

I hope you found this lesson useful 🙂

  13. Hi, Liz
    I have a question: Do you think it is possible that corona will come as a topic in the IELTS?
    Either in writing or speaking ? Or maybe in reading?

    • It might not appear as the topic “Coronavirus” but it might appear under the topic of “Health” or “Working from Home” or “Socialising Online” or “Being alone” etc. You can use all these words to express yourself in such topics and relate it to your experience of the current situation we all face today.
