He bought her a bunch of flowers to cheer her up.

The full tweet said: “Did my First NHS responders job yesterday, old lady hasn’t been out the house for 7 weeks, said she’s started to feel depressed, so got her a bunch of flowers with her tablets. Still a long way to go with this virus, stay sensible, remember it’s probably worse for someone else!”
