First Briton To Catch Coronavirus Says He Beat Illness With ‘A Glass Of Hot Whisky’

My kind of medicine.

The first Briton to catch coronavirus in Wuhan claims he cured himself of the deadly virus with “a glass of hot whiskey & honey”.

25-year-old Connor Reed had been living in Wuhan and teaching English there for the last 3 years when he caught the coronavirus and went to hospital ‘struggling to breathe with a severe cough’. 

Connor told The Sun:

I was stunned when the doctors told me I was suffering from the virus. I thought I was going to die but I managed to beat it.

I used the inhaler which helped control the cough and drank a hot whisky with honey until that ran out.

It’s an old fashioned remedy but it seemed to do the trick.

I did refuse to take the antibiotics the doctors prescribed me because I didn’t want to take any medicines.

Um not sure why they would try and give him antibiotics for a virus but I guess we’re just going to have to take his word on that one. The teacher, originally from north Wales, says Wuhan has become a “ghost town” in recent weeks (as we saw in this drone footage the other day):

I’ve been off work and the boss thinks we will be reopening in a couple of weeks but I’m not so sure.

Wuhan is becoming a real ghost town — there is hardly anybody in the streets and the shops are running low of fresh fruit and vegetables.

If you go out without a mask the police will arrest you.

Well at 25 years of age I guess it isn’t too much of a shocker that Connor managed to recover from the coronavirus, which we know is only really deadly if you are of a certain age. Which makes it even more conspicuous that the doctor who first warned about the coronavirus died from it the other day – at only 34 years old.

TBH I have a feeling Connor might be chatting shit here and only really had a regular flu but I so badly want to believe a Brit beat the coronavirus with whisky that I’m just going to choose to believe him. Why bother with hospital at all? Just down some hot whisky with honey and you’re good to go.
