First Dates waitress Laura Tott contracts coronavirus while working as paramedic
First Dates waitress Laura Tott has contracted coronavirus while working as a paramedic.
As well as waitressing on the reality TV show, which shows a number of couples having dinner in a restaurant on their first date, Laura is a qualified paramedic.
The 25-year-old, from Surrey, revealed her positive diagnosis for Covid-19 on Instagram yesterday.
She qualified as a paramedic 12 months ago.
In her Inst post, in which she posted a photograph of herself in her NHS uniform, she said: “Little throwback to when I didn’t have coronavirus, and when I brushed my hair.
“Today’s been a weird one, kinda knew I had contracted it but actually hearing the word ‘positive’ threw me a little.
“I know I’ve been quieter on social media recently but I’ve felt like absolute rubbish.
“Never had any form of flu before so I’m not handling it well. Never slept so much.
“Just wanna thank every single person who is staying in their house and doing their bit still, let’s all beat this Rona b****.
“Just wanna say that I am ok, just feels like a really bad cold.
“So I’m one of the lucky ones. Wanna spread awareness. My first symptoms were complete loss of taste and smell, and then felt like I had sinusitis, I think these symptoms need to be taken way more seriously.
“I had no cough or fever at first, and still have no cough now.
“Stay safe and well everyone.
“Netflix recommendations welcome, it’s gonna be a long week for me.”
