"Been tested 3 times and I'm STILL POSITIVE"....
'Entertainment reporter, Richard Wilkins, who contracted COVID-19 earlier this month is STILL infected.
He was astonished that after many weeks of isolation, that his latest round of testing - his third, has shown a positive result for coronavirus.
And bizarrely enough, he's still feeling 100%!
He posted on Instagram today, “The suggestion is that days after the last symptom, people should ‘assume’ that they're over this thing and proceed with caution. I find this totally unacceptable and irresponsible! I completely understand the fact that the last thing the Health Department wants to do is spend days retesting people like me and God knows that I don’t want to soak up resources."
So word up, just because you're feeling okay and you have self-isolated, doesn't mean you're in the clear.

So .... I’ve now returned a positive result THREE times... still can’t believe it as I still have ZERO symptoms. They tested me again today ,.. and hopefully will return a NEGATIVE result. Fingers crossed!!! The suggestion is .... that 3 days after the last symptom ...people should ‘assume’ that they’re over this thing ... and ‘proceed with caution’ ! I find this totally unacceptable and irresponsible! I completely understand the fact that the last thing the Health Dept wants to do is spend days retesting people like me... and God knows that I don’t want to soak up resources... but I don’t see how I can walk out my front door until I have a clean ‘bill of health’! I know the health system is fighting a huge battle ... and resources are stretched ...but in clear conscience ... I can’t put others at risk ... until I’m assured that I’m not POSITIVE anymore ! Love to all RW XX
