YES, a case of coronavirus has been confirmed in Worcester, no, we should not all rush out to panic buy or lose our minds about it.

The fact a case has been confirmed in Worcester was inevitable, it was always going to reach Worcester.

What we need now are cool heads and calm responses to coronavirus, not hysteria.

There are things in life you can control and things you cannot.

Coronavirus is one of the things we as individuals cannot stop, all we can do is take the necessary precautions to prevent the virus' spread.

All we can do is make sure we know the official advice and follow it to the letter.

We need to recognise the symptoms, as well as what to do if we think we are suffering from it.

Our habits will need to change over the next few months, but it will be worth it to halt and eventually stop the spread of the virus.

Wash your hands thoroughly, follow official medical advice and don't panic. Panicking in these situations gets us no-where, we just have to ride out the storm.
