Rebecca Mack Biography
Nurse Rebecca Mack died in April at her home in Morpeth, Northumberland
She isolated herself with Covid symptoms and died after calling paramedics.
Her mother Marion asked families not to get too close to their relatives
The mother of an NHS nurse killed by the coronavirus asked families not to “go crazy” this Christmas and to come together because “this virus is still a killer.”
Rebecca Mack, 29, died at her home in Morpeth, Northumberland in April after showing symptoms of the virus.
The nurse, who previously worked at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary childhood cancer ward, was living alone and in isolation when her symptoms worsened.
He called for an ambulance and left the door open for her to arrive, but paramedics found Ms. Mack dead in her home.
The tests later confirmed that the nurse had the coronavirus, her family told The Chronicle.
Her mother, Marion, 60, warned those who celebrate Christmas to show love to their families “by staying away and not getting too close.”
She said: “We fear that people will go crazy at Christmas. You can’t stop people from getting together on Christmas, but people should try to do it remotely.
“If we can hold out a little longer until people are vaccinated, there will be no more deaths. This virus is still a killer.
Her daughter, who had worked for NHS 111 before her death, had remained in contact with her family while in isolation in Morpeth.
Ms. Mack said Rebecca told her she felt better hours before she died.
The distraught mother has now condemned those who are simply “selfish” and don’t take the pandemic seriously, adding: “Some people just don’t get it.
Mrs Mack and her husband Alan, 62, created a JustGiving page in memory of their daughter and raised almost £ 20,000 to support RVI’s Childhood Cancer Fund.
Scientists today warned Britons to “rethink” Christmas gatherings that risk scientists fearing a new wave of people by “infecting” the vulnerable and elderly we love with Covid-19 infections.
Families in the UK can create a Christmas bubble between 23-27 December and spend the Christmas season with no more than three families.
This allows Britons to travel between levels to join their ‘bubble’ and groups can meet in private homes, gardens, places of worship and public outdoor areas.
However, experts warned that the government is sending the “wrong message” by asking families to obey the rules. Some suggest that a third wave of infections could be triggered in the new year.
