Councillor warning after his Covid-19 experience

Harry Leach 21st Nov, 2020

“IT will seep into your lives if you drop your guard” – that was the verdict of a County Councillor who contracted Covid-19 in the summer.

Coun Adrian Hardman ordered a home test after developing symptoms of the virus in mid-July.

He said: “It was the third week of the month as I remember rates were very low in the area at that time.

“One minute I was out walking the dogs and then suddenly I became really cold and had to go inside.

“Within an hour I had a high temperature. It came on so quickly, I could not believe it.”

The cabinet member didn’t have a cough but did have a high temperature and lost his sense of taste and smell.

He was bed-bound for a week, leaving him unable to do anything.

“This virus can affect anybody,” added Coun Hardman.

“It’s really not something you want to have, so let’s all be careful,” he added.

Worcestershire County Council is reminding people that over the remaining weeks of lockdown everyone should be staying at home.

That is other than for education, work (if you cannot work from home), exercise outdoors, medical reasons, shopping for essentials or to care for others.
