Stay home if you are sick, don’t go to your GP. Stock up on what you might need for a week or two so you do not have to go food shopping. Get lots of sleep, rest and drink plenty as there is no cure, you just need to support your body as best as you can to fight it off.
On Thursday night, the Prime Minister recommended that you stay at home if you have symptoms. Do not call 111 for mild symptoms, but do call if your symptoms worsen at all.
Practice good hand washing, soap and water is even better than hand gel so don’t worry that it is sold out nationwide. Make sure you wipe clean your phones, light switches and door handles every night and always catch any coughs or sneezes in a tissue.
Be well and see you next week for more updates and advice on the Coronavirus pandemic.
