How you can help during the Covid-19 pandemic
How you can help during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As Covid-19 continues to spread across the UK (and the rest of the world), we wanted to put together a short blog listing ways in which you can help slow down the spread of the virus and help in other ways. This post contains zero paid links, we just want to help spread any help we can to as many people as possible.
It goes without saying that we should all be following the rules put in place by the government, these can all be found on the gov.uk
The main thing you can do is STAY AT HOME.
You don’t need to cancel seeing your friends, you just need to change the venue to your home! The app ‘House Party’ is taking the app stores by storm. Download the app, sync your contacts and bring on the (virtual) party! You can chat and play games, there’s plenty to keep the fun going! Download the app here - House Party App
Covi-19 Symptom Tracker
COVID Symptom tracker lets anyone healthy or with symptoms share valuable information with researchers and the NHS. Just take 1-minute to self-report daily.
By using the app, you can help scientists identify:
• High-risk areas in the UK.
• Who is most at risk, by better understanding symptoms linked to underlying health conditions.
• How fast the virus is spreading in your area.
Download the app here.
The NHS needs you!
NHS Volunteer Responders has been set up to support the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak. To do this they need an 'army' of volunteers who can support the 1.5m people in England who are at most risk from the virus to stay well. Doctors, nurses and other professionals will be able to refer people into NHS Volunteer Responders and be confident that they have been matched with a reliable, named volunteer.
You can help by signing up for one or more of the tasks listed on their site. Once you have registered and checks are complete you will be provided a log-in to the GoodSAM Responder app. Switch the app to 'on duty', and you'll see live and local volunteer tasks to pick from nearby.
You can find more info over at the GoodSAM website
