Hemanth Singh told the Recorder that he wanted to reveal the first-hand experiences of his family and said that he hoped people would “see sense” and stay at home during the lockdown.
The Suttons Primary School pupil speaks with extraordinary maturity and describes his mum Komal’s condition worsening to the point that she had to be moved to intensive care at queen’s hospital.
Now we’ll leave it to Hemanth, who lives with his mum, dad Sattesh and sister Vashika, 12, to tell his incredible story.
The nine days that she was at home provided her no sleep and my dad lost days of sleep too. He needed to provide my mother all the support whilst maintaining social distancing and taking care of us as well. My dad also has a pre-existing medical condition, so he needed to safeguard himself too.
