Isolating student nurse told to ‘go home’ to ‘at risk’ parents by roommates

AN isolating student nurse with Covid has been told to ‘go home’ to her elderly ‘at risk’ parents by roommates.

Spanish Elena Cañizares shared Whatsapp chats where three fellow students put pressure on her to leave on Twitter – receiving more than 85,000 ‘likes’ and 27,000 shares.

The young nursing student claims the “pressure to go” came after she “confessed” she was Covid positive and had to remain isolated in her own room so as “not to infect anybody else”.

She said she was astounded at their response when they told her she was “being selfish”.

“Elena, you have a car, you take your things and you go home and you don’t spread anything.”

Elena reminds them in the chat that “a Covid-positive person cannot move from their home”, reminding them that her parents are elderly and at risk.

“Your parents have a duty to take care of you, we do not, we have met on the street and we do not have to live this situation, ” they respond.
