FULLY RECOVERED: Bushey Heath councillor gives his experiences of being ill with coronavirus 

 Published on: 23rd June 2020   |   By: Geraint Roberts   |   Category: Uncategorized

Bushey Heath councillor Paul Morris OBE (pictured on the left) has opened up on his own personal experiences after dealing with the coronavirus at the start of March but has thankfully since fully recovered.

After being told by the NHS over the phone on numerous occasions that it wasn’t the coronavirus, an antibody test revealed this month that he had in fact been suffering with the illness.

He said: “I felt terribly achy, had a temperature, upset tummy and suffered with headaches. It was remarkably unpleasant. I just spent a lot of time in bed really, the whole thing went on for around two and a half weeks.

“I wanted to get the antibody test as soon as it was available to give me piece of mind, mine came back as positive whilst my wife’s test came back negative. 

“It is a very surprising virus; it creeps up on you and all of a sudden you feel very unwell. Thankfully, from what I know, everything seems to be pretty much back to normal personally, although the world is still suffering.

Mr Morris OBE is back at work now undertaking his regular councillor duties but admitted the virus did put everything on hold.

He added: “Despite not having it confirmed as the coronavirus, I definitely wasn’t well enough to go to work, and it did put everything on hold for a bit, but I was slowly able to attend meetings on Zoom.”
