This year, National Stroke Week is perhaps more critical than ever. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there have been fewer people calling triple zero (000) and going to the hospital at the first sign of a stroke.
You could save the life of a loved one, a colleague, a stranger or even yourself by learning to recognise what to look out for and acting at first signs of a stroke. Knowing the F.A.S.T. (Face, Arms, Speech and Time) acronym can save lives. So this week, let’s recognise the importance of thinking F.A.S.T and encourage others to become more aware of stroke, understand their risk and what they can do to prevent a stroke.
