Coronavirus Advice

We have received this information from The Third Age Trust – our national U3A organisation:

The Government and NHS have issued advice for members of the public following the confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UK. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

The UK Chief Medical Officers are advising anyone who has travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days and is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, to stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.

More information about the virus, as well as symptoms and advice, is available to view at: www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirusinformation-for-the-public

Or on the NHS England website at: www.england.nhs.uk/2020/02/statement-from-nhs-england-and-nhsimprovement-on-coronavirus/
