Coronavirus: Medical staff call on public to stay home

Doctors and nurses plead with people to socially distance themselves with messages including ‘Be responsible, stay home, because I can’t’.

“Social distancing” has become a catchphrase around the world during the coronavirus pandemic.

But the message has not been getting through to everyone, prompting some doctors and nurses to turn to social media.
