Glam coronavirus medic slams trolls who mocked her for wearing make-up

A glamorous NHS paramedic has let rip at the trolls who mocked her for wearing make-up on the job.

Laura Heath, 24, shared a snap of herself in her uniform writing that she was "proud to be a paramedic".

It comes as the heroic NHS fights the coronavirus outbreak, which has killed 1,028 in the UK since its outbreak.

But Ms Heath was met with a wave of snide remarks by people who lashed out at her for wearing make-up.

One low-life wrote: "Wtf really (look at me I'm gorgeous an I work for the NHS) selfies for a few likes while people are dying smh."

"Another said: "Pride is a sin and so is VANITY."

While another said: "Seriously? I think that you've probably got better things to do than trout pout."

But Ms Heath hit back, telling site Tyla: "The unkind comments were mainly focused on my appearance and the fact I wear makeup. I was told I am the reason the death toll is rising (in reference to the coronavirus pandemic).
