Coronavirus physician’s diary: Karen caught Covid from the hospital – and took it home


As she cleaned the hospital in April, Karen was scared not for herself, however for her household. She and her husband, Mal, had moved right into a caravan in Mal’s dad and mom’ backyard, whereas his mom was sick with most cancers – and so they stayed on after she died, to assist Mal’s 80-year-old father, Malcolm. Mal, a hospital porter, was shielding as a result of he has persistent obstructive pulmonary illness, and Malcolm senior was clearly weak due to his age.
