This poem has been sent into us by a paramedic who is on the front line of the fight against COVID-19:
‘Don’t call if you have a cough.
Nor if you have a fever
Don’t call because you’re feeling rough
And not an eager beaver
Covid-19 can make you feel grim
Your body all achy and tired
But checking 111 online
Would be the action required
With pillows, you can prop
If you breathing gets short
But to call the Ambulance Service
Should be the absolute last resort
Don’t call us for a symptom check
For you may expose us to the bug
And we have no magic treatment
Paracetamol is your drug
A paper mask and an apron
Is our level of protection
So please don’t expose us
To your developing infection
We may well get ill ourselves
Or pass it on to someone frail
And if that were to happen
Our displeasure we may not veil
To get this thing resolved
Please follow the government’s advice
Show some personal restraint
And don’t roll the Covid dice’
