Cases of coronavirus in Scotland have now been confirmed and people are advised and provided with information on how to reduce the risk of getting the infection. Age Scotland has compiled some useful information for older people and their families on how to avoid the deadly virus.
NHS 24 has also set up a dedicated helpline which older people can call for advice and information on 0800 028 2816.
As carers, it is important to keep ourselves and our families protected. Learning on how to fight any virus or disease is a great tool that we can have and share with our loved ones because it spreads knowledge and awareness.
