Coronavirus, England, Health, Science, UK

A Yorkshire engineer has spoken out about his battle with coronavirus after becoming the first British man to test positive for the virus twice.

The 23-year-old tested positive for coronavirus and after 10 long days started to feel better and had almost returned to his normal state of health.

He tested positive for the second time in September 2020 and was bed-bound for two weeks and found himself struggling to breathe.

“The first time round, I was getting chills and a bit of a temperature with a cough, but after about five days, my symptoms subsided and I just felt a bit weak still.”

“I went back to work after my self-isolation period and felt almost back to normal but then I started getting symptoms again at the start of September. I had the same symptoms as last time but they were far more severe – I had a seriously high temperature, I didn’t have the energy to do anything, I was barely eating.”
