Listen to public health advice says Manx resident with coronavirus

23-year-old received confirmation last night

A 23 year-old Manx resident who's tested positive for coronavirus is calling on the public to be smart and listen to government advice.

Louisa Bowker had mild symptoms last week, and was tested at the Grandstand on Friday (20 Mar) before receiving confirmation last night that she has the virus (22 Mar).

Ms Bowker, who's been self-isolating with her partner since Wednesday, says she feels fine, but is urging people with even faint symptoms to follow advice.

She spoke to Local Democracy Reporter Ewan Gawne:

There are 13 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the Island at present.
