It’s day 10 in quarantine, and Ben Kavanagh is waiting on test results which will reveal whether he has contracted coronavirus. He’s due to leave quarantine on Thursday if all goes well.
He also receives a care package from a fan in London and clarifies some “fake news” about the Wirral quarantine facilities.
Ben is an Irish national who worked as a teacher in Wuhan – the epicentre of the outbreak of the deadly virus. He was just one of millions of locals under lockdown before he was evacuated to the UK.
