Let’s Talk About…Coronavirus 101

Tuesday April 14 2020
On Saturday 4th April, MEND Manchester hosted an online webinar with Dr Jawad Amin, inviting healthcare- related questions from the audience during this global pandemic.
Dr Jawad gave his advice on how those who live with vulnerable people can best protect themselves, how useful face masks are and what the experts are talking about when referring to ‘the curve’. This online session provided members of the public a comfortable space to speak with a doctor and clarify the misconceptions they had surrounding COVID-19, and to address any personal issues or situations they currently had.
The Let’s Talk About… project is one pioneered by the MEND Manchester Working Group and is part of their action against the impact of Coronavirus. We hope that this endeavour can bring people some comfort during this period and provide them with the knowledge and support that will make this period in history easier for them.
Feedback from this session was overwhelmingly positive, with attendees praising the webinar as being ‘informative’ and ‘interesting’ among other words of encouragement. Many thanks to Dr Jawad Amin for leading on the session and sharing his expertise with the wider public.
Our next session will be looking at maintaining mental health and will be led by Dr Shazad Amin, Consultant Psychiatrist.
