CORONAVIRUS COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS
WE ARE WHERE WE ARE....and yes, later we will need to investigate why and apportion blame, if, and as, appropriate.
However, these solutions can be implemented NOW with no need to wait for tests, data, PPE or anything else.
All that's needed is for these ideas, developed by a small group of professionals, to be considered - and adopted if worthwhile..

One click is all it takes - please help to save lives.
1. DOMESTIC CARE - THE TSUNAMI ABOUT TO HIT US
Each week in the UK, it is estimated that 540,000 people receive support in their own home, up to a million home-care visits each day.
What's provided on these visits can range from help going to the toilet, to preparing a meal or support with medication. All impossible to deliver with social distancing.
Care workers can at times see up to 20 clients during a day.
Our shielding plan, in conjunction with best practice, PPE etc, will protect these most vulnerable clients, one household at a time.
2. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND SOFA SURFERS
Government to commission vacant student accommodation to provide refuges for domestic abuse victims and general sofa surfers, all potentially soon to be homeless as lock-down takes its toll.
