Doctors in Málaga now advise elderly people and people with chronic diseases to stay home.
Elderly people and people with previous pathologies are at great risk of developing serious symptoms if they get infected with the coronavirus, and they should take extra precautions, faced with this pandemic.
The Málaga College of Physicians recommends:
“The elderly should change their habits as soon as possible and not use public transport or frequent cafés, bars and restaurants, with a large influx of people.”
This advice is following the news that Andalucía will close all schools and universities, as a measure against the virus. Regarding that, the Málaga Medical Association emphasises:
“This is NOT a vacation, and families should not act as if it were.”
They advise that children should not go to playgrounds, birthday parties or cinemas, and absolutely not have contact with their grandparents during this time.
