Covid-19 Threads is a series of short films presenting twitter posts that have appeared with the #Covid-19 tag. These shorts are presented in the same social media space in which they were originally placed by the authors, and documented here.

In this episode, nurse Amelia Hennegan describes her sad experience of holding the hand of a dying man at the height of the pandemic (April 2020). Her frustration bursts out from the tweet as she asks people to ‘stay the fuck home’, as the lockdown starts to fray.

Heartfelt thanks to Dominic Minghella for permission to use his material, to Claire Lacey for voicing the film, and Sandy Nuttgens for post-production sound.
