My daughter is now exhibiting symptoms of the #coronavirus— Luke 'Ming' Flanagan (@lukeming) March 18, 2020
Cough, shortness of breath and severe headache. We have contacted our local GP. We are now waiting for an appointment for her to be seen. 2 to 3 days wait. Our family will now go into self isolation. Fingers crossed.
