Age UK has also produced a new guide about coronavirus (COVID-19) that includes information about the symptoms of the virus, how you can reduce the risk of catching the virus and spreading it to others, and how you can continue to look after yourself and others. It includes a useful organisations section with helpful signposts to other sources of specialist information.
