Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Jay Short, a mother of three, 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.
After moving from Ashington, Northumberland, she now stays with her mother, Judith, who is also a medical official.
