Dr Alex George urges the public to ‘work together’ to fight COVID-19 as case numbers rise

The Love Island star has been working on the front line during the pandemic


Dr Alex George has urged the public to “work together” to fight against COVID-19, amid an increase in case numbers.

The Love Island star has been working on the frontline at the A&E department at Lewisham Hospital in London during the coronavirus pandemic.

With cases of the virus on the rise, Alex used his large social media following of 1.5million to share an important message.

“I know that we are all fed up of COVID. Trust me when I say I am,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself and his colleagues wearing face masks.

“However, we all have the ability to help prevent this crisis deteriorating. Lets work together to fight this virus.”

He promised his followers that the healthcare workers “will always be here to look after you and your family, when you need us.”

“Please help us by preventing hospitals from being overwhelmed over the coming months. We are in this together💙” Alex added.

Adding a note to his Instagram Stories, Alex wrote: “Positivity. Working together. Looking out for each other. Doing our bit. Let’s do this.”

Alex previously admitted that he sometimes goes home “in tears” while working on the frontline during the pandemic.


Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine at the time, Alex confessed: “There have been some difficult times.”

“There’s been days where I’ve been coming home very upset and in tears at the things I’ve seen.”

“I’m quite open to speak to my colleagues at work,” he explained. “We’ve got a wellness room, which actually we can kind of go to if things get a bit difficult.

“Or speak to a colleague or a friend and go through what you’re experiencing,” he added.

It’s been a difficult few months for Alex, after the tragic passing of his younger brother Llyr back in July.
