People with cancer and their families might feel especially worried about the virus, as cancer and its treatment can lower your ability to fight infection.
Coronavirus is a viral infection that affects the lungs. Anyone who has a weakened immune system is more at risk of being seriously ill if they get coronavirus (COVID-19). People with cancer may be at a higher risk of getting coronavirus (COVID-19). It is important to follow the advice from the NHS and your healthcare team.
The Government is advising everybody to:
Stay at home
Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (where this absolutely can’t be done from home)
Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
Wash your hands as soon as you get home
