Older people showing resilience amid coronavirus threat

Published on 10 March 2020 12:00 AM

Caroline Abrahams, Charity Director at Age UK, said: "Old age isn't for cissies' they say and it's true that many older people have lived through a lot, and are pretty resilient in the face of threats such as the Coronavirus. From this point of view older people are often tougher than others expect, providing a sense of calm for their families during crises such as the health emergency we are living through at the moment."
