Coronavirus Pandemic Blamed For Rising Blood Clots On Leg (DVT) Deaths
Nollywood actress Susan Peters took to Instagram to share an update on the Coronavirus pandemic.
The 39-year-old said that people are not only dying of COVID19 but also of Deep Venous Thrombosis (blood clots on the legs) because of lack of exercise.
Here is what she wrote on her official Instagram page today:
Dear family, friends, colleagues,
Friends working in a London hospital have informed us that people are being brought to the hospital for developing DVT, Deep Venous Thrombosis (blood clots on the legs) and they are dying of this disease as well.
Everyone is advised to move around in the house (mobilize). Whether working on the computer at home or watching tv, ensure that you move about frequently.
Do exercise as much as you can to prevent this deadly disease.
It is not only Covid-19 that is killing people.
At this time when we are all locked in, you should not sit all day at the table reading and working on computers or watching TV all day.
Please take a walk round in the house and in the compound.
We need to pass round this information to support one another.. Forwarded as received.
Shalom Always… #OchesMom”
