A MAN who has just read that ‘eye pain’ can be a symptom of coronavirus is beginning to feel the first twinges of eye pain.
Martin Bishop read the story in Mail Online and, before a story he clicked about Michelle Keegan in a biker jacket and skintight leggings had even loaded, was already experiencing pain in both eyes.
He said: “Christ, my eyes. And I’d only just got my sense of taste and smell back from that story I read in The Times last week.
“I’ve had all the symptoms. Occasional slightly-above-average temperature, aches and pains, headaches, tight chest. They’re especially bad when I watch the news, or read terrifying stories the media won’t tell us on WhatsApp.
“No, I’ve not had the persistent dry cough but come on, there can’t be any doubt now. My eyes are killing me. I think this is that strain they’ve got in America. I’m calling 111 again.”
Friend Eleanor Shaw said: “Martin lives alone, hasn’t gone out in a month and is in a low-risk area. You can’t get coronavirus just by thinking about it really hard.”
