Hollyoaks cameraman Felix Schroer dies after coronavirus fears 'No test done'

Felix Schroer died after a two-month illness and his sister took to Twitter to reveal he suspected it was coronavirus. However, it has been claimed the Hollyoaks cameraman had not been tested for COVID-19.

His sister, Sylvia Schroer, revealed on Twitter that her sibling had died and the family is currently awaiting a verdict from the coroner.

Answering a fellow Twitter user’s question about whether he should self-isolate after developing a “fairly persistent dry cough”, she replied: “Many are in this situation. I lost my brother on Friday. He had cough/runny nose for two months.

“He was given antibiotics by GP last Monday & self isolated. He died on Friday. It seems he had a massive allergic reaction to the medication but believed he had Covid 19 & no test done.”

She continued: “The aftercare support wasn’t there and online advice made him believe allergic reaction was a side effect of helpful drug – so he carried on. But we cannot speculate as we have not been able to speak to coroner yet.”

“From Monday 30th March, we will be reducing the number of our weekly new episodes from five down to three, which will air Monday to Wednesday.”

The show’s bosses went on to reveal that fans will get a new series in which they can watch their all-time highlights from the drama.

They continued: “To make sure we stay on air every week night, fans can look forward to extra special episodes every Thursday and Friday on E4, as we begin a brand new series of Hollyoaks Favourites.

“Introduced by Kieron Richardson and Jorgie Porter, this series will give viewers a chance to revisit some of our biggest episodes, from weddings, bust-ups, heartbreaks and some of our biggest and best stunts.

“We will start the series with Mercedes’ fourth wedding, to Dr Browning.

“Soaps are an important part of people’s lives and we have 25 years of Hollyoaks Favourites to revisit over coming weeks, celebrating the history of the show that you love.”

They finished: “We will remain as present as ever on our social platforms so please keep in touch with us here, stay safe and take care of yourselves. Thank you for your ongoing support. Love from everyone at Hollyoaks.”

The news came within hours of ITV’s announcement that the production of Coronation Street and Emmerdale will stop due to COVID-19 concerns.
