Dr Alex George might be facing the horrors of the coronavirus pandemic first hand, but the medic told fans he was remaining positive despite the tough times. 

Sharing a photo with two of his colleagues by an ambulance outside of his hospital in Lewisham, Alex wrote: ‘Yes things are uncertain and times are tough but we do this TOGETHER with POSITIVITY. 

‘We do not let coronavirus take our spirit. Keep smiling and stay strong.’

The former Love Island star returned to his job as a doctor after leaving the show and has kept his followers updated with his work amid the pandemic. 

Maintaining his positive outlook, Alex recently shared another heartfelt post telling fans: ‘MENTAL RESILIENCE is so important at this time, all of us are being tested to our limits in a variety of ways. 

‘As tough as this can be, trying to use the time for reflection and positive change is key. Look after your physical and mental health and plan for when the storm passes. Good times WILL come.’

He also appeared on Lorraine where he discussed the importance of mental health among the medics who are working with the most ill patients every day. 

Alex explained: ‘We’re seeing a lot of sad things, we see it normally but not on this scale. I can definitely see how this will build up for a lot of people. 

‘It was really interesting to speak to staff and see how they’re coping. The feedback I got was that there’s ups and downs, you see things that affect you.

‘But ultimately seeing these things day in day out have an impact on your mental and physical health.’

He admitted it wasn’t always easy to stay upbeat, explaining: ‘Yeah I have had some difficult l times, I’m quite open. I’ve come home in tears at some of the things we see. I’m happy to speak to my colleagues at work.

‘We have a wellness room, if you need a bit of time. I can speak to my colleagues, friends and family and my girlfriend has been amazing. I’ve spoken to her about some things.

‘Patients are also amazing, they are so grateful for our help and that can bring a warmth.’
