Shirley Watts, an operating theatre nurse has made an emotional appeal for people. She requested everyone to stay at home because the pressure of the coronavirus outbreak has left the hospital staff on their knees.
Shirley warned people in a tearful video and asked people to support NHS by staying at their homes. As the coronavirus cases have been increasing day by day, hospitals in the country are short of staff. She worked at Basildon University Hospital in Essex.
In a video, she pleads: “We are all on our knees at the moment and we are pulling weirdo shifts. We are all supporting each other luckily and we are trying to saves lives.”
She said: “We are just doing what we can to save people’s loved ones. She burst into tears and said that I wanted you to see me like this because I want people to realize how serious it is. I want you to tell if you know anyone that’s going out and they don’t need to. I want you people to say something to them and asked them to stay indoors and stop spreading the virus.”
Shirley said we are staying away from our families and we are putting ourselves in danger to try and saved other people’s loved ones. She said that we have never been in this situation before and we are just doing what we can to protect people.
A tearful Shirley adds: “It feels like a losing battle, but it is not because we have all got hope. We are trying to do what we can to protect you, people.”
Shirley made the video after completing six hours shift. She told viewers that she is going home to get some sleep and then she will return for her night shift. She recorded the video to request people to help them by staying at their houses.
