Although many elderly people in the UK are preparing to self-isolate due to the coronavirus pandemic, three friends have decided they won’t be doing it alone.
Doreen Burns, Carol Spark and Dotty Robinson from Salford, Greater Manchester, have known each other for over 40 years. They plan to isolate together in the same home in an attempt to combat loneliness. Not only do they have all of their favourite series on Netflix to watch while self-isolating, but they also have a ‘supply of wine in’. Apparently, it was the only thing they’ve been panic buying!
