LLOYD Russell-Moyle has gone back to work after recovering from coronavirus.

The Labour MP for Brighton Kemptown spoke in the House of Commons yesterday afternoon to challenge an early Easter recess for Parliament amid the coronavirus crisis


“Closing this place without putting sufficient measures of online debate and questions is foolhardy at best,” he told the House.

Mr Russell-Moyle said he self-isolated when he felt symptoms and was later confirmed to have coronavirus after waiting six days for his test results.

Yesterday, he wrote about his experience in The Argus.

Reflecting on retuning to work, he said: “People must following their individual doctor’s advice.

“The advice I received was three clear nights after symptoms stop, or 14 days after symptoms started, whichever is longer.

“I went for the longer number of days and then my doctors gave me all clear.

“My advice to each person is that they should follow advice from experts.”

While for some coronavirus can lead to very serious illness and even death, for others the symptoms may be so mild they might not be noticeable at all.

Those who do experience illness as a result of the virus have reported a range of different symptoms that can vary greatly from person to person.
