Huw Edwards has slammed the “weird responses” to his tweet about coming down with Covid-19.

The Welsh BBC broadcaster revealed yesterday that he had caught the virus again, and shared an image of a positive lateral flow test.

In his post he said that he has been “feeling rough” after catching the virus, that he is “on the mend”  and would be back at work “soon”.

He also suggested it would have been a lot worse, had he not had “3 jabs for protection”.

Today, in response to some of the messages he’d received about his post, Huw Edwards said:

‘Suspected coronavirus’

Edwards has previously revealed he was off work for three weeks recovering from suspected coronavirus at the beginning of the pandemic.

He said he developed symptoms while walking in Kent in mid-March, in an article for Welsh language magazine, Barn.

The UK-wide lockdown was announced on 23 March. Though he was not tested for the virus, he said a doctor who treated him was “totally convinced it was Covid-19”.

He then returned to work after a period of rest “having fully understood what the illness was”.
