A struggling nurse broke down in tears on This Morning after admitting she was ‘too scared’ to go to work on a Covid-19 ward.
Speaking with Phillip Schofield, Rochelle Humes and Vanessa Feltz on Tuesday’s instalment, nurse Kerry asked the hosts for help with her ‘anxiety’.
‘I’m an NHS nurse and I have been for 13 years,’ she began.
‘When Boris announced we were going into lockdown again I just sobbed.
‘It’s the dread of actually going into work not knowing what you’ll be given that day, how short-staffed you’re going to be, what pressures you’re going to be under.
‘I just want help with managing the anxiety.’
Taking to Twitter after the heartbreaking phone call, viewers couldn’t help but send their love to Kerry thanking her and the NHS for their hard work.
Others branded the nurse a superhero.
One viewer said: ‘Poor lady. Must be absolutely terrifying working on a COVID ward.’
Another tweeted: ‘Poor Kerry. That has to be tough as a nurse.’
While another added: ‘Kerry really needs to take some time out to look after her mental wellbeing. She sounds broken. I hope she speaks with her manager and gets the support she needs.’
‘Feel sorry for Kerry tbf she sounds genuinely upset,’ one said.
It comes after Boris Johnson revealed a third national lockdown for England.
On Monday, the Prime Minister addressed the nation where he announced new harsher measures.
The new rules say that if you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should ‘always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live’ though you may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work.
This Morning airs daily at 10am on ITV.
