Actress Yvonne Nelson has taken to her Instagram to paint a picture of what it would be like if someone tested positive for the coronavirus after flouting lockdown rules.
The post, which described the process as a lonely one, was to urge people to follow health directories and stay indoors.
“When loved ones are removed from your home by ambulance because the VIRUS’ has hit them hard, you are not going to be able to follow them there, sit by their hospital bed and hold their hand. You are not going to be able to pop in at 7.00 pm for visiting hours.”
“They are going to have no one other than exhausted and brave hospital staff to see them through days or weeks of barely breathing through a ventilator until they either die or recover,” Yvonne Nelson wrote.
She explained that because of the severity of the virus, patients cannot constantly text their family neither can they call in nurses as it happens in regular wards.
According to Yvonne Nelson, going through such tough times alone could be “terrifying” hence stated the need for individuals to stay home and stay safe.
