Rita Ora is ‘tormented by concerns’ about her mother working on the frontline in the fight against the corona virus
‘I am tormented by concerns’: Rita Ora expresses fear about her mother Vera, 55, who works at the front in the fight against the corona virus
Rita Ora says she is “tormented” with concern as her mother continues to work on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 29-year-old singer spoke to Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston on Heart Radio on Wednesday, saying she was inspired by her 55-year-old mother, Vera Sahatciu’s “selfless actions.”
Vera works as a psychiatrist at the UK National Health Service, where she cares for people with mental health problems and COVID-19.

When Amanda asked how her mother was doing, Rita said, “I talk to her every day – probably twice a day. I’m still very concerned and always worried about her, but I just can’t stop her.
“My mom is such a positive person and even during all of this she was so uplifting.
“She feels it is her duty and responsibility. It is so inspiring to see how she saves lives every day. ‘

The singer says the global health crisis has helped her “appreciate everything so much more,” and hopes the world will be a “friendlier” place once the pandemic is over.
“I really appreciate everything so much more now. Everyone is in the same boat and you really see what’s important in life when something like that happens, ”Rita said.
“I have a feeling that when all this is over, there will be much more kindness in the world. And I hope people will realize the value of life and see things differently. ‘
While her mom is working, Rita – who recently volunteered at the NHS – spends her time at home, spending more than ever in bed to make up for a decade of lost sleep.
She said, “Weirdly, I feel very happy because I’ve been traveling for 10 years, so I’m catching up on 10 years of sleep. I am recording and trying to be productive. ‘
But more time at home also means she’s been snacking more often, saying her favorite snack is a Jaffa cake.
In a separate Wednesday interview on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, she added, “I eat a lot, I don’t know how many times a person can eat a Jaffa cake. What I really need is a lock on my refrigerator. ‘
