Professor Jason Leitch Covid-19 Advice.

The public has been divided into four categories:

Group 1: Those with symptoms

"If you have a new persistent cough and/or a fever your whole household has to now stay home for 14 days. If you live by yourself the seven-day rule applies."

Group 2: The clinically high risk – e.g. chemotherapy patients

"They’re going to get individual contact from the health service"

Group 3: The over 70s; people who get flu vaccine for health reasons; and pregnant women

"Cut back social contact as much as you can – nothing non-essential. Do not go to work. Do not travel on public transport, do not have large family gatherings."

Group 4: Everybody else

"We’re asking as many people as possible to work from home. Don’t use public transport unless you absolutely have to. Do not meet in big groups or socially in small groups.
