#StayingInSavesLives Day 14 at home.
It’s now been 14 days staying home with my family in self-isolation. Today, #WFH most of my time is spent managing digital campaigns, brainstorming meetings to create experiences online given the new developments of the current spread of the virus either on a skype call or Teams, being isolated with my family has given the importance of community and being well informed.
Last April, after my daughter’s 2nd birthday, she had pneumonia. It was scary. I felt helpless in the hospital as her lungs were inflamed and became more difficult to breathe. I stayed with her overnight at Evelina London Children’s Hospital. She recovered a few days later however, I then was infected by pneumonia by staying with my daughter to comfort her (as all mother’s do when a child is unwell). Both my daughter and I are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 as we both a previously infected with a lung bacterial infection.
I am sharing my personal story with you, the importance that we are not all invisible, we can get infected regardless of how healthy you are. The single most important action we can all take, in fighting COVID-19 is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. Avoid any unnecessary physical contact and try to protect loved ones by speaking over the phone or online instead. #Istayhomefor my daughter, myself and others in my community that have had a respiratory health issue in the past. Who are you staying home for?
