Shopping for the Elderly and Vulnerable People

Facts About Coronavirus
Coronavirus is affecting London and changing how we live. Since the pandemic was confirmed, London has been experiencing increased coronavirus cases. As a result, the government is enforcing self-isolation, social distancing and travel bans.
They have instructed people to stay at home apart from essential trips. Why are the elderly more vulnerable? Older adults are more at risk because their immune system deteriorates as they age. Therefore, their ability to fight Covid-19 is compromised.
What Can You Do To Protect Yourself?
Although it’s a new illness, it is widely assumed that the virus spreads via sneeze and cough droplets. Self-isolation will protect your family, colleagues, and friends better from the disease. Use soap and water to clean your hands regularly and for no less than 20 seconds. It’s highly recommended that you use a tissue when coughing and sneezing and dispose it immediately. Keep away from social gatherings and limit contact with others to a distance of 2metres.
