- Jay Short, a nurse in the UK, has packed out of her house so as to keep her family safe from infection possibilities
- The only contacts she has with them after moving in with her mother, also a medical official, are through the window
- Jay said that she does not want to wallow in the agony of losing her loved ones and that was why the temporary separation is important
Jay Short, a mother of three, has reflected great human kindness as she sacrificed everything to be at the frontline, treating coronavirus patients.
The 32-year-old woman had to move out of her house, leaving behind her three children and husband, so she does not expose them to coronavirus infection from her contacts with patients, Daily Mail reports.
After moving from Ashington, Northumberland, she now stays with her mother, Judith, who is also a medical official.
Jay was really scared she would infect sons, Logan and Tommy, and one-year-old daughter, Lottie, who has had medical complications on several occasions in the past.

In an emotional message on her Facebook page, the woman said she had to take that drastic and rather unconventional action to keep her family safe.
“Moving out was something I felt I needed to do for my family to survive. I wanted to break the chain before it could even start, so I knew I had to take myself out of the equation.
“I'm absolutely heartbroken the only relationship I can have with my children for the next few months is through the window,” she said.
Jay said after witnessing the pain that people go through after losing their loved ones, she decided against needlessly putting her family at risk.
Though the nurse does not know how long she will be staying away from her family, she will be following NHIS updates.
The mother of three also said that she is always angry whenever she sees people outside putting themselves in great danger, saying that this is not a holiday but that there is a virus that is killing people.
