Richard Wilkins has given an update on his COVID-19 self-isolation -with no symptoms.
But after 3 positive tests, he is hoping that his latest will prove negative.
On Instagram he wrote, “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”
Wilkins has also been posting his thanks to friends who have dropped off food packs, including supplies of Corona Beer (“everyone’s a comedian!”) and his guilty pleasure Watties Baked Beans.
Hang in there, Dickie! Can’t have been fun….
