Following the continuing spread of the corona virus, it is essential that everyone continues to follow expert’s advice to delay the spread of this disease.
- Regularly washing hands thoroughly with soap and water or alcohol-based hand wash. This may sound basic but it really is an effective way of slowing down transmission
- Self isolate for 7 days if you do develop a persistent cough or fever.
- Only contact NHS 111 if symptoms worsen and you need medical help. This is to ensure the service is not overwhelmed and is able to help those who most need it.
This approach is adopted on the advice of experts, including Prof Whitty the chief medical officer and Sir Patrick Vallance the chief scientific advisor, who truly are world leaders in this field.
