We know that a large number of our population will be infected with coronavirus in an effort to develop herd immunity, and whilst not all of us will develop the COVID-19 disease as a result of the virus, preparing our bodies and minds to experience it is essential.
Chris Wasey has now done a short coronavirus-specific vlog detailing particular advice for people who are immuno-compromised during the COVID-19 pandemic.
