My story: Valda, 93

I’m diabetic but my fears are for my grandson who has heart problems and works for the health service. He’s not able to go to work at the moment but I’m still concerned about him. This coronavirus isn’t just about young people worrying about older people. Older people are worried about young people too.

I wonder why the Government or the scientists can’t deal with the way this virus affects black people more. Maybe after they find a vaccine we’ll know more. They will have more time to investigate.

I’m scared about going to hospital now. The number of cases is going down but one person can slip through the net and start everything again. I think the masks people wear make the streets more frightening too – you don’t know who’s behind a mask. There could be more crime.
