Covid – 19 Update No. 3

Events move swiftly. People have been asked to avoid any form of congregation in any setting and schools have closed. By asking the British public to voluntarily change their behaviour, their routines, the government achieves lock down in stages but lock down is where we’re headed. London is already in shut down and will soon be in lock down. The rest of the country is about three weeks behind.

People are stepping up to volunteer in so many ways. Neighbours are taking care of neighbours. Medication , and even meals, are being delivered to the elderly, frail and vulnerable. Via various social media platforms, those in isolation are joining forums, accessing exercise videos, and finding ways to entertain their children. Even well known musicians are providing live streams. All these gestures decrease social isolation because there’s very much the sense that we’re literally all in this together.
