Medical specialists in the U.K. have also issued a caution and advice, in an attempt to raise public awareness of the attacks.

Johann Grundlingh, consultant emergency physician, Jessie Payne, trainee in emergency medicine, and Taj Hassan, president of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, co-wrote an editorial highlighting their concerns and offering advice.

“Bystanders who come to the aid of the victim of an attack can have an important role in minimising further injury,” they wrote in the British Medical Journal.
