Coronavirus symptoms can creep up on you. Then, bam – you’re in hospital fighting for your life. Young lad George Mitchell hadn’t seen it coming.
The “fit and active” teenager told his mum Andrea, 36, that he didn’t feel well.
Feeling hot to touch, Andrea gave her son paracetamol to bring down his fever.
The next day, May 5, his fever continued to soar – reaching 40.4°C – and he was suddenly unable to eat or talk.
