COVID-19 myth busting from Penny Brohn

Just love Dr Zollman - she's spoken on both Living Well and The Approach courses.
There is understandably a lot of anxiety in the cancer community around coronavirus. This anxiety is in some ways very justified but can also be as contagious as the virus itself.
Here Dr. Catherine Zollman, Medical Director at Penny Brohn UK and NHS GP, tackles some of the myths around coronavirus to help you better manage your anxiety at this challenging time.
Some of the myths she challenges in this video are:
  1. COVID-19 is a serious illness and likely to kill anyone in a vulnerable group, including everyone with a history of cancer.
  2. The immune system of everyone with cancer is weak and therefore they are more vulnerable to the virus.
  3. There is nothing we can do to support our immune systems and improve our resilience to the virus.
  4. Shielding recommendations are completely inflexible.
