Doctors, charities and the NHS are telling people not to be put off by the coronavirus pandemic and still attend A&E to seek medical care.

Doctors are warning people not to delay seeking help or treatment as you could be putting your long-term health and life in danger.

NHS England’s medical director Stephen Powis said, “If you do have symptoms of stroke, chest pain and think it might be a heart attack, a sick child who is deteriorating, if you are a pregnant woman and the baby is not moving as much as it used to, it is important you don’t delay.”
