Piers Morgan believes he caught coronavirus at Wembley Stadium when he watched England play during the Euros 2020 final. Five months on, the 56-year-old said he’s still suffering from Covid-19 symptoms, but is improving thanks to medication. The presenter shared his health update in response to Sky News Rowland Manthorpem who has a “nasty case of long Covid”.

As part of a lengthy thread, the 39-year-old said his main symptoms are “fatigue and brain fog”.

He added that while he is “medically perfect” and his health had improved since March, he has “much less energy” than usual.

“I don’t want to sugarcoat it: this experience has been hellish, not just for me, but also for my partner, who has shouldered an enormous burden with the aforementioned two-year-old,” he added.

He went on to say his GP had referred him to a long Covid clinic for further help.

Piers replied to the Sky News presenter, writing: “DM me… I had same for 5 months but new meds seem to be cracking it.”

The double-jabbed journalist caught Covid after attending the Euro 2020 with his three sons in July.

His symptoms included; a cough, fatigue, a loss of taste, a fever, chills, violent coughing and sneezing fits.

In August, he revealed he was also suffering from “posterior vitreous detachment” in his left eye.

The condition occurs when the gel that fills the eyeball separates from the retina.

According to the Royal National Institute of Blind People, PVD isn’t painful and it doesn’t cause sight loss, but you may have symptoms such as seeing floaters (small dark spots or shapes) and flashing lights.

He wrote: “28-day Covid update: a new treat – aside from ongoing tedious fatigue & inability to taste wine, all the coughing’s caused a ‘posterior vitreous detachment’ in my left eye.

“So, I’m now seeing weird ghostly cobwebs swimming around.

“It really is the virus that keeps on giving.”

Piers has continuously praised scientists for creating the jabs as he believed he’d be much worse if he hadn’t had them.

The father-of-four’s latest update comes as the new Omicron variant continues to spread across the UK.

England’s chief medical officer Chris Whitty has urged Brits to scale back their socialising over the festive period and be cautious.

The Government and scientists have also encouraged people to get their booster jab as soon as possible to help stop the spread.

Last week, Boris Johnson enforced his Plan B, which re-introduced compulsory mask wearing in most indoor public venues.

On claims the Government had imposed a lockdown by stealth, he said: “If you want to go to an event or a party… the sensible thing to do is to get a test and to make sure that you’re being cautious.

“But we’re not saying that we want to cancel stuff, we’re not locking stuff down, and the fastest route back to normality is to get boosted.”
