A British family has told how emergency crew in hazmat suits raced to their home after they returned from Italy with coronavirus symptoms.
Callum and Jessica Luana Kerslake, from Hull, were in Venice with their two children when they developed high temperatures, a cough and dizziness.
The father-of-two says it felt like his 'eyes were on fire' and 'every hair on his body stood on end' when he fell ill just hours after arriving in Italy, The Mirror reports.
