In a viral video speech, the chief nurse asked the people to stay at home for those two corona heroes who sacrificed their lives because of them. She mentioned that the weather during the weekend is going to be pleasantly warm attracting people to come and enjoy it outside their houses. But, they should limit themselves between the walls of their houses and follow the lockdown. “I ask to remember Aimee and Areema. Please stay at home for them. They were one of us, they were one of my profession, of the NHS family. I worry that there’s going to be more and I want to honour them today and recognise their service,” Ruth said in the video.
