Caroline Maddocks, one of the Stockport NHS employees, isolated her and herself to protect her 14-year-old son Ben’s health during Covid-19.
Ben is a child with cerebral palsy and autism. She said that she would do anything to hug him but everyone should follow the rules set by the government during this period.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, his mother said that he could only see his son through a nursing home window or video chat.
The prime minister said his advisor, Dominic Cummings, took his wife and child to Durham after he got infected, and he did so with parental instinct.
Maddocks said: I had to follow the rules, and as a parent, I act instinctively, isolate him, and keep him safe.
Hold his hand
Together Trust was allowed by her and her daughter to see her son, who was provided by social services and stayed in the nursing home where NHS staff worked.
“As a mother, I wanted to be here with my son. I know he is safer here. If I wanted him to stay with me, I would have been selfish.” I would do anything just to hold his hand and bring him back home.
Prime Minister’s office has been contacted for their comments.
