Five days into lockdown, ‘offering nursing advice’ online, ‘I first ask for a short medical history, their age, and determine their symptoms,’ @Janine Campbell, an Australian registered nurse speaks of her work voluntary work in Cannes, France.

Hydration, regular temperature taking, monitoring their symptoms, and encouraging isolation,’ is the medical advice she offers as a nurse and Master of Global Health Policy at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, U. of London. Janine is doing an incredible job supporting the healthcare system. Her message is, ‘it would be great to see this kind of community nursing service could be started in your area.

It is important to keep those we can out of the hospital but to ensure they are supported, and someone is checking in to ensure, their condition does not deteriorate in their isolated state.’
