The UK Government’s COBRA meeting on Monday communicated that the UK remains in the containment phase of managing the virus. Much of the advice is simple common sense, and washing your hands regularly with soap and warm water remains the single best step you can take.
However Coronaviruses can cause more severe symptoms and complications in people with diabetes, as well as in older people, and those with other long-term conditions.
We know that a significant proportion of our members and volunteers fit into at least one of these groups at higher risk of severe complications. Following advice from Diabetes UK, the group will suspend all activities from Monday 16 March until at least 30 April 2020. This includes group meetings and all Lifestyle Project activities.
