The past few days have understandably been an uncertain and worrying time for many of us.
There has been a sharp increase in the number of cases of coronavirus both here and across Europe, and the potential effect it could have has been well publicised.
In order to ensure we minimise the impact that it will have, it is really important that we listen to and follow the advice of medical professionals who are experts in this field.
We also need to pull together. I know the people of Hampstead and Kilburn will - and already are - doing exactly that.
I would like to pay tribute to groups like the Hampstead Volunteer Corps, the Hampstead and Kilburn Covid-19 Community Relief, Kilburn Mutual Aid and Age UK Camden who are already gearing up to help people cope with the impact of this pandemic.

It is important that we all do what we can to help the most vulnerable people in our society.
We must also make sure that, in doing so, we follow the latest public health advice to avoid putting ourselves or anyone else in harm’s way. If we follow the advice and help each other, I have no doubt that we will come through this difficult time.
