A fit and healthy 32-year-old woman has told of the excruciating pain caused by the coronavirus after she caught it at a ski chalet in Switzerland.

She had been lodging with 12 people and said all have come down ill, with one Swiss man testing positive for the disease.

It raises further questions over how easily Covid-19 has swept through ski resorts on the Continent after Sussex father Daren Bland - who is believed to be Britain's patient zero - said a bar in Ischgl, Austria, was the 'perfect home for the virus'.

Ms Parkes got back to the UK on Saturday, March 7, and went to work as normal on the Monday.

But on the Tuesday she woke up at 3am feeling sore in her back and hips and said something was hurting inside her.

She told the Telegraph: 'It was unbearable, no position I could sit, lie or stand in helped and it made sleeping really difficult.

'I had a temperature which went up and down over four days, spiking at 40C on the Thursday and I was bed-bound the whole time.

'I never got the chest pain but had a bit of a cough – just a normal cold-type, phlegmy cough. I went off my food a bit as I improved because I lost my sense of taste.'

Ms Cuthbert said: 'Of course I was very worried about when he developed the fever, as I was worried about the coronavirus.

'But as he wanted to protect me I couldn't go and visit him,' she said.
