She said: "I felt angry and thought come on people get a grip.

"Even when I told them that I work in the NHS it didn’t make any difference."

She added: "I was given the same response when I put a scenario to them, suggesting that they could have Covid-19 and if one of their parents worked as a carer for a vulnerable high-risk person, they could pass it on to and be responsible for more deaths."
