Lots of people, in England or not, are not taking the new measures introduced seriously. If they did and only went out for essential travel, the pressure on the NHS would be eased greatly. The NHS are working day and night so it would be of sheer trouble or inconvenience to go to hospital whilst they are working so hard to find a cure for the wellbeing of all others. People ignore the distancing measures and defy all the rules that the government introduced to keep them safe. The NHS are under great pressure and so they need time and evidence to find an appropriate cure. Waltzing into an A&E , claiming you are hurt will take time that could be spent looking for a cure. The isolation measures are also being violated, and the government are being forced to take precautionary action. The Prime Minister has already caught the virus and so will many others. For the wellbeing of all, the NHS recommended everyone stays at home until this pandemic is over unless it is essential.

    Thank you for this post, crafty_reality. The government are saying that the vast majority of people are following the rules but a small minority are still having to be reminded. It's also worth remembering that people 'waltzing into a&e' probably aren't the biggest threat to progress, but those who are not social-distancing and therefore putting others at risk.

    I agree with you, everybody always talks about staying home and social distancing but some people don't do their part to move forward. As a society we should help one another as much as we can even if that means simply just staying home and washing our hands. People who are carelessly going out and 'waltzing' into A&E are being insensitive to those who actually have serious illnesses/injuries. If were to actually respect the rules and requirements for this pandemic, then there would be a lot less people infected/dead because of it.

    I think that people with 'minor' injuries should remain at home so A & E can concentrate on corona and serious matters alike

      The NHS recommends A&E is only used for certain injuries anyway, so we should continue to follow their guidance.

      A&E stands for accident and emergencies so I don't think that people with COVID-19 should go. And say if someone broke their leg they will HAVE to go A&E because a broken leg or anything else is VERY severe. And minor injuries sometimes might not be minor, you might think it is minor when it can be something way worser. I mean you never know so that is why you should still go to A&E even with 'minor' injuries.

    Interesting comment Willing-flight. I know that I recently had an injury and I wasn't sure if it was serious enough to go to A&E or not.

    What do you think people could do to determine if they should go to A&E or not, before actually going?
