“I’m scared for my husband. He’s a stroke survivor and had pneumonia last year and is particularly vulnerable to infections right now.
“We’re not seeing anyone to try to fight off the virus – we’re in complete isolation. We can’t see our adorable grandchildren, our family, friends or anyone at all like we used to. It’s just devastating to think that we can’t see them right now.”
“My COPD doesn’t stop because of coronavirus. People like me still need help to breathe better and the outbreak makes this more important than ever. Being well and feeling well are the most important ways I can protect myself.”
“I’m at a higher risk of the virus because of my asthma, so I’m not going out now at all. I think at a time like this I’m struggling like everyone else.
“The Advice Line Nurses help people like me with things like anxiety and specialist medical advice. They are a lifeline during this outbreak and beyond.’’
