Matthew Wright has said he is “trying not to panic” after revealing that his two-year-old daughter is suffering from nasty coronavirus symptoms.
He appeared that morning on Monday (January 4th) and revealed suspicions that his entire family had Covid-19 and that they are waiting for their test results.
Matthew spoke to hosts Phillip Schofield and Rochelle Humes on reports that the government might tighten restrictions further The mirror.
Phil went on to ask how they all felt, to which Matthew replied, “I can put aside the idea that young children don’t suffer from Covid symptoms badly. [My wife] Amelia had a really hard time, but Cassidy coughed through the night too – she coughed phlegm and made herself sick at night.
“It was pretty dark. I’m trying not to panic, not calling an ambulance, because I know hospitals will be overcrowded. So we’re just trying to keep cool and move on.”
Fellow guest Julia Hartley-Brewer interjected and said, “All I can say, Matthew, is that hospitals aren’t so crowded that they’d turn away a sick child. If you need to go to the hospital, 100% of the time you should call 111, call 999 and take your child to the hospital. “
Matthew added, “It’s about pushing through the exposed Covid protesters and saying, ‘It’s a joke, it’s a joke!”
“It’s nonsense, that’s nonsense,” replied Julia.
Matthew hit back: “It’s not nonsense, it happened three days ago in St. Thomas.”
When asked if it was a problem that his children might need an ambulance, Matthew said, “It has eased a bit in the last 36 hours, we also had to balance it with the fact that we have a neighbor who is there is intensive care on Christmas Day, no underlying health conditions, just over 60. We just heard he may have turned off his life support today.
“So we have to classify our situation relative to everyone else and technically we will be statistically okay.”
