Expressing that he prayed for this intense and stressful process to be left behind as soon as possible, Kızılbayrak said, "We have urgent intervention in patients, sometimes we race for minutes or even seconds. When I go home, I think of our patients. I think that those who receive treatment will be my parents and I try to do my best. " said.
Kızılbayrak stated that she also caught Kovid-19 due to being constantly intertwined with patients who were treated, and that she overcame the disease after the treatment process at home.
Stating that she could not isolate herself at home due to the care of her children aged 2 and 4, Kızılbayrak stated that she was afraid of transmitting the virus to her children.

I have two children, they wanted to be with me all the time. I never took off the mask during the day. My children ask why I am wearing a mask. Still, "Mom, can we kiss?" This situation is really difficult for a mother. " he spoke.
Kızılbayrak asked people to consider the difficult conditions of healthcare professionals and to follow the rules of mask, distance and hygiene by showing sensitivity.
