A Travelodge hotel in Birmingham has undergone a through deep clean after a former guest warned them they had tested positive for Covid-19. The unidentified patient reported the positive Covid-19 result to the Travelodge Hotel in Maypole, Birmingham after their overnight stay last week. A specialist hygiene company has been tasked with deep cleaning the guest's room which will not be available until the task has been completed. A guest at the Travelodge hotel in Maypole, Birmingham, pictured, advised management that they have recently tested positive for Covid-19 prompting a deep clean of the room the person stayed in. The hotel chain confirmed no other staff or quests have shown any symptoms Once the room has been thoroughly cleaned, it will returned to service A spokesperson from Travelodge told Birmingham Live: 'We can confirm that a guest who stayed at one of our Birmingham hotels last week has contacted us to advise, that they have tested positive for Covid-19.
'As soon as we were informed, we took the room that they occupied offline and instructed a specialist cleaning company to deep clean it. 'We have not received any further reports from guests or staff of feeling unwell.' MailOnline has approached Travelodge for a comment. She is famed for her hourglass curves.

The reality star has admitted to also having had her ears pinned back, two boob jobs, a nose job and lip fillers.

Speaking to Kathy Burke during a segment on her documentary All Woman last year, Megan spoke about the backlash she recieved after appearing on Love Island. She revealed: 'I got so much stick for it in the island. But I didn't think there would be that much stick for getting surgery. I was getting death threats at one point. I think people just love to hate.' Megan added: 'Whether you edit yourself on these apps or in real life you get so much stick. Several reports have recently been published regarding how the novel coronavirus impacts the lungs, and then can spread to other organs such as the heart, kidneys and liver. Since the beginning of the pandemic, researchers have struggled to understand why the virus doesn't impact these tissues, but not other sets of organs. But a new study from Spain suggests that proteins found in the lungs act as the primary activators. The team, from the University of Zaragoza and the Fundación Agencia Aragonesa para la Investigación y el Desarrollo, found that proteins in the lungs are triggered by the virus, which causes proteins in certain organs to activate, making them more susceptible to infection. Researchers looked at proteins in the lungs and how they interact with proteins the virus uses to infect cells.

Pictured: Members of the medical staff treat a patient who is wearing helmet-based ventilator in the COVID-19 ICU at the United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas, July 28 The virus uses a protein found on the outside of cells called angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) to enter and infect them. Once inside a human cell, the viral proteins interact with those in the body, which can lead to either mild or severe effects. However, not every organ with abundant amounts of ACE2 is affected by the virus, which the researchers say must mean there is a different pathway for transmission. 'This receptor is ubiquitous in most human organs, such that if the virus is circulating in the body, it can also enter into other organs and affect them,' said lead author Dr Ernesto Estrada, a professor in the Institute of Applied Mathematics at the University of Zaragoza. 'However, the virus affects some organs selectively and not all, as expected from these potential mechanisms.' For the study, published in the journal Chaos, the team considered how proteins prevalent in the lungs interact with proteins in other organs. Estrada explained that for proteins to interact with each other, they need to move inside the cell in a 'subdiffusive' way. Similarly, proteins in a cell must swerve around obstacles to interact, but some exist in the same cell or organ and others do not. Taking this into account, Estrada developed a mathematical model which showed there are 59 proteins within the lungs acting as the primary activators for other organs. When the virus affects the lungs, this kicks off a chain of events that trigger changes in proteins in other organs. However, these changes just occurs in certain organ such as the heart and kidneys and not in others, such as the stomach. For future research, Estrada says he wants to study if targeting the proteins in the lungs will help prevent future multi-organ failure. 'Targeting some of these proteins in the lungs with existing drugs will prevent the perturbation of the proteins expressed in organs other than the lungs, avoiding multiorgan failure, which, in many cases, conduces the death of the patient,' he said.
