Dr Jonathan messages to mob

1.The vast majority of people can recover from the coronavirus, 80% of people don’t have a serious illness and manage at home and get better, of those hospitalised some people end up in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with lung troubles and some may end up with decreased lung function and different organs in the body can have trouble.

2.COVID-19 can be on surfaces we see around us, some items we may come into contact with, remember to keep your hands clean with soap and water or hand sanitiser.

3. If you have got previous lung damage from medical conditions, then it probably places you more at risk, this is an area more research is been done.
