Former Dublin hurler Michael Carton, who is a member of the Dublin Fire Brigade, told Virgin Media One’s Ireland AM this morning about testing positive for Covid-19 over the weekend.

Michael explains in the video below that he has never had any health issues and his symptoms started off with a fever, chills and headaches.

As he is part of Dublin Fire Brigade, he called their medics who advised him to self-isolate. He was self-isolating for four days, then he starting coughing slightly - but nothing major.  

The DFB have a link with the HSE and he was tested with the swabs down the throat and up his nose. He got the results back within 24 hours, which tested positive, and was brought straight into the Mater Hospital.

He said he was brought in the back way and straight into isolation.

Ireland AM airs seven days a week on Virgin Media One.
