Due to the coronavirus pandemic, doctors and nurses have been putting themselves at risk in order to treat the ill.

This means they are more likely to contract the virus than those who can stay home.

As well as medical staff, key workers such as drivers, supermarket staff and warehouse workers are also at risk.

Sadly, Tom isn't the only person Lisa knows who has the virus.
