CORONAVIRUS
Latest Advice
Symptoms
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
  • New continuous cough and/or
  • High temperature
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste  

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness If you have coronavirus symptoms:
  • Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home
  • Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home
  • Plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
  • Ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
  • If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • Visit NHS 111 Online for more information

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
  • If you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible

Interesting News for Pasta Lovers
Amazing research carried out by Dr Denise Robertson on blood glucose levels when eating white pasta at different temperatures!!!It's fairly common knowledge these days that eating simple carbohydrates like white pasta, can cause a surge in blood glucose and a resultant surge in insulin levels... this is not good for the waisteline or the poor old pancreas that needs to pump out all that extra insulin!But did you know that by cooking pasta and allowing it to cool, you convert the carbohydrates in the pasta to a "Resistant Starch" which makes it more difficult for the enzymes in our body to break it down and, in effect, convert it to a more complex form of carbohydrate or "slower sugar?"But event more amazing is the effect when you cook, chill and then reheat the pasta!!! This process makes the carbohydrates even more resistant to the enzymes we produce and even boosts our dietary fibre!!!See attached slide and watch the episode by clicking this link:http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04m0bt4/trust-me-im-a-doctor-series-2-episode-1
