I urge all elderly and vulnerable residents not to open the doors to callers, unless they got an appointment.
Fraudsters are urging the elderly to let them help with shopping and ask them for bank details. Do not give your bank details to anybody.
About 1.5 Million vulnerable residents are about to get letters from the government urging them to stay at home for about 12 weeks.
Local councillors are setting up groups to help local, vulnerable residents. You will be contacted or can contact your councillor Eve McQuillan for Bethnal Green.
Mobile: 07594 828420
Other local councillors will be available in each ward.
I understand that the government will guarantee food deliveries for vulnerable residents during the isolation period.
Anybody who can volunteer to help please sign up at the Tower Hamlets volunteer bank.
I want to urge all to stop stock-piling. Accumulating lots of paper or cooking oil can increase your fire risks and dry foods can get infected with pests. Also clearing shelves and buying as much as possible doesn’t help those who need to find things in our shops, please only buy what you need.
