Piers Morgan reveals he became sick with Covid-19 despite being double vaccinated

Piers Morgan has revealed that he tested positive for Covid-19, despite being double vaccinated by the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.

The British broadcaster said he was struck down by a fever, chills and a lot of sneezing and coughing.

He revealed he became infected after attending the Euro 2020 final in Wembley.

Piers said that he went into the game hopeful that it will be safe due to the fact everyone in attendance was supposed to show proof of vaccination or a negative lateral flow test.

However, with the antics which occurred at Wembley the night of the final, restricting access to those who were protected became an impossible task.

Two days passed since the game when Piers began to feel unwell, so he decided to take a rapid antigen test, which ultimtely returned positive.

Morgan then went for a PCR test, which too came back positive.

“As I’m sure everyone who gets it feels, it’s a strange, disquieting moment to know I have this killer virus inside me,” he said.

He went on to say he suffered from a range of symptoms.

“This is definitely the roughest I’ve felt from any illness in my adult life, BUT, as I slowly come out the other side, coughing and spluttering.”

“I’m still here – unlike so many millions around the world who’ve lost their lives to Covid in this pandemic,” he continued.

“For that, I owe a heartfelt debt of thanks to the brilliant scientists up in Oxford who created the Astra-Zeneca vaccine with such astonishing speed.”
