    People who are more likely to get very ill from Coronavirus need to take more care in protecting themselves. This includes:

    • older people
    • people with health conditions like diabetes, heart problems or difficulties with their breathing.

    We also know that some men, people who are overweight and people who are exposed to a lot of the virus are more likely to become very ill.

    Other people may be more at risk because they have not been vaccinated against Coronavirus.


      It’s important to remember that anyone you come into contact with could live with someone who is is at risk of becoming very ill, and so it is best to try and be careful around everyone you meet.

      This means that it is a good idea to think about how you can protect yourself and the people you live with to reduce the amount of virus in your home.
