Garda promoted to sergeant while battling Covid-19

A Dublin garda and father-of-three was promoted to sergeant while battling Covid-19 in Beaumont Hospital.

Sergeant Paul Cullen from Balbrigan described that the virus made him feel like his lungs were getting harder.

The 48-year-old thought he had a chest infection and then the flu two weeks prior to being hospitalised, during which he self-quarantined.

He stated “I felt like my lungs were getting harder, and the only thing to make me feel better was to cough up something that wasn’t there. The sensation was overwhelmingly hard because of the breathing, congestion and constant coughing”.

Paul managed to see his family on the 9th of April.
