Young person with coronavirus shares plea for others to self-isolate.

Post date:



A 28-year-old man who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 has shared a desperate plea for all young people from his hospital bed at Kerry General Hospital in Ireland.

“I caught the coronavirus in London. I had no symptoms. I tried to avoid a potential lockdown in London so I could be at home with my mother,” Michael Prendergast told Sky News.

“I arrived home on the 16th of March, on Monday, and by Tuesday I had horrific shortness of breath, an extremely hot temperature. By Wednesday it had exacerbated.”

Prendergast explained he has now been in hospital for five days, and says there is a dangerous misconception amongst the general public that COVID-19 is akin to the flu.

Prendergast says the illness, which originated in Wuhan, China, has almost killed him.

At the time of reporting, on March 24, coronavirus has killed over 16,000, and infected almost 400,000 worldwide.
