Paul O'Grady Dog Bullseye


Paul O'Grady, 64, believes he has coronavirus and is coping well

Paul O'Grady has revealed he believes he has "definitely" had coronavirus, after stepping back from his radio show in order to self-isolate. O'Grady said he had experienced 'exhaustion' alongside some "flu-like symptoms" during an appearance on Gaby Roslin's radio show. That's knocking about, but there's also flus and seasonal colds going about so you've got to tell yourself and learn the difference. He said that he had been self-medicating with a vinegar solution, however there is no medical evidence for this and those experiencing symptoms are advised to seek medical advice. Last month, O'Grady confirmed he would be stepping down from his Radio 2 show after being advised to self-isolate due to his underlying health issues.


Paul O'Grady believes he has coronavirus but is coping well despite his serious health issues. The Birkenhead television and radio star, who has suffered three heart attacks, is in the NHS advised at-risk category. Paul said: "I'm all right now. That's knocking about, but there's also flus and seasonal colds going about so you've got to tell yourself and learn the difference. "But I'm one of these people who falls into the category of underlying health problems and that's because I've had heart attacks.


I'm down in the wilds of Kent with a very lively five weeks old puppy, so I've got my hands full and I've got plenty to do, and I'd just like to say to everybody else who's self isolating - good luck and keep healthy and look after yourselves. 65,077 have tested positive and the number of people admitted to hospital with coronavirus symptoms now stands at 16,784. And a massive thank you to every single person who has stayed home to stop this terrible virus from spreading, you have helped protect the NHS, and you have helped to save lives. Now, as we look forward to the long bank-holiday Easter weekend, I know some people are going to start wondering is it time to ease up on the rules. So I've got to say thank you for your sacrifice.


And as we've said on many occasions now, we will be guided by the science at all times. The measures will have to stay in place, until we've got the evidence that clearly shows we have moved beyond the peak. And I know there is going to be lots of people who would normally be planning a family get together or just getting out in the sunshine with friends and loved ones. But take a moment to think of the progress we've already made, Following the guidance, staying home, denying this virus what it needs, to spread more easily and to kill more people. It's been almost three weeks, and we're starting to see the impact of the sacrifices we've all made.

And the most important thing right now is that people continue to follow the government's guidance until we've got the evidence that the virus is firmly under control. So that means please do stay at home, to protect our NHS and to save lives. After all the efforts that everyone's made, after all the sacrifices so many people have made, let's not ruin it now. We mustn't give the coronavirus a second chance to kill more people and hurt our country. I know it's tough going.

Why the CDC isn't talking about it The CDC has a long history of ignoring outbreaks. In 2004, for instance, it said nothing about research showing that the H1N1 flu was causing a significant number of heart attacks and strokes. The agency has also refused to release information about the CDC's vaccine recommendations, despite the fact that the agency has been monitoring the vaccine's efficacy. And, finally, the CDC has no plans to get involved in the debate over the H1N1 swine flu; its new guidelines recommend all Americans get vaccinated. Still, the CDC is ready for the debate. "While we have not yet seen any evidence that there are any increased risks associated with H1N1 vaccines, we do not recommend that anyone postpone vaccination for H1N1 because of this issue," says Dr. Bruce Aylward, the CDC's associate director for vaccine research and evaluation

How coronavirus spread in italy?

Following the outbreak, it was claimed that the virus had been diverted from the Middle East to Italy. But the discovery of the virus in a child in Spain has cast fresh doubt on this claim. The Spanish Ministry of Health said that genetic material from the virus was found in an 8-year-old girl who was born in the Spanish capital, Madrid, on October 31. The virus, which causes pneumonia and is spread through coughs and sneezes, has been in the world since the late 1980s. The Ministry said the girl was born in Madrid and was in the intensive care unit at San Juan de Dios Hospital, in the city centre of the country. The ministry said the girl was not infected in the hospital, and was not named in order to protect her identity

How coronavirus started?

"The virus has spread rapidly across the whole of the eastern US and now to the UK, and there is very limited overlap between the two outbreaks," he said. "These new viruses are highly variable in their ability to infect people. In some cases they will have the capacity to infect a few people, and in other cases they will have the capacity to infect many people." Mr Mould said the virus, which is now also found in parts of Asia and the Middle East, is "much more virulent" than the 2009 coronavirus, which has killed more than 1,000 people across nine states and is still causing outbreaks. "It's a very dangerous virus, and I'm not sure how it got there in the first place," he said
