Covid Symptom Tracker, a new app, has been launched by Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals and King’s College London university to try to understand more about the way COVID-19, or Coronavirus, is manifesting itself and why some people get the disease more severely than others. It also hopes to map where outbreaks are happening.
There are fake apps and scams around but this one is genuine and everyone who can is encouraged to sign up for it at https://covid.joinzoe.com/
All you have to do is spend a minute each day answering quick questions, even if you feel well.
By doing this you can contribute to research on COVID-19 in partnership with leading scientific institutions.
Note, you are advised to check the access preferences you give the app. If you untick any, check again every day.
There will be a service of healing and wholeness at St George’s this Sunday (March 17), at 10am, where everyone will have the chance to receive prayer and anointing with oil.
Healing and wholeness are not just about physical recovery. Lesley Crawley explains: “During his lifetime Jesus came alongside people, had compassion on them and healed them. Christians believe that in order to be whole we need to be at peace with God, with ourselves, with other people and with creation.
“Healing and wholeness can be about forgiving ourselves or forgiving others; they can be about moving from a place of denial to one of acceptance; they can be about finally finding peace of mind or finding the strength of spirit to overcome problems that have dogged us for years. Healing and wholeness are for everyone, for we worship a God of love who wants the very best for every person who God created.”
Come and join us at St George’s on Sunday at 10am.
