Doctors are asking the general public to be careful during the Thursday evening “Clap for Carers” which takes place every week at 8pm.
Dr. John Wright from Bradford Royal Infirmary has said there have been “interesting little peaks” of accidents after each Thursday’s event. He went onto say that people should be a little more cautious as most people have been sitting for long periods then get up to clap. There is also the risk of older people falling due to not being used to being outside.
On top of the national applause, some people have also been playing musical instruments and letting off fireworks to show their appreciation of the front line workers and the NHS.
