Grantham Journal reader shares important coronavirus message with a poem
A Journal reader has shared a poem as a reminder of ways to help restrict the spread of Covid-19 virus.
Carolyn Brocklebank has written a poem to remind us all of our responsibility to limit the spread of coronavirus.
This comes after the daily coronavirus death toll surpassed 900 in the United Kingdom for first time this week.
The poem reads: "It’s a virus like no other,
"Ever seen upon this Earth,
"From pensioner to birth!
"Although we cannot see it,
"We know it is around,
"Lurking on the things we touch,
"As on our hands it’s found!
"Corona is a virus,
"That easily gets caught,
"So we must go on doing,
"The things we have been taught!
"Our hands, we must keep washing!
"This is no time to start.
"And chat to all our good friends,
"Social distance! Keep apart!
"Stay in! By far the safest!
"Far away from fellow man,
"Using telephone or face time,
"Text or email if you can!
"Take care and make the effort,
"To help our NHS.
"Stay fit in mind and body,
"Don’t put them to the test!"
