Speaking about the day, Rosa said: “It happened when an elderly man passed out on the road, while walking with his son.

“The ambulance came and they managed to get him to breathe again. He was taken to the Royal Infirmary where he was diagnosed with several heart problems.

She said: “Indeed, I am grateful for her courageous action, as well as all the doctors, nurses, pharmacists, researchers and everyone on the front lines of the battle for Covid. You are all heroes, especially Ktirsty. . Thank you. You for all your silent sacrifices. “
