Countries around the world have been paying tribute to their respective emergency services & health care workers as they face unprecedented ‘mass casualties’ from the COVID-19 virus.
The rate at which people are succumbing to COVID-19 after being admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICUs) around the world is genuinely shocking.
We have seen and heard stories about healthcare professionals who huddle together and cry at the end of their shifts as they try and care for people who are fighting a disease which, other than the bodies own immune system, has no cure or treatment.

And remember; COVID-19 can be stopped in its tracks if we stay indoors, keep to the two-metre rule when out shopping and if we wash our hands as often as possible and at the very least if we wash our hands before touching our mouth, nose or eyes.
We owe it to the men and women who are risking their own lives to try and save others, to keep to and follow the necessary instructions outlined above.
