A dad has told how he is still suffering from the effects of Covid nearly a year after contracting the virus.

Dean Dobson, a health worker, did not even know he had the virus when he first started feeling unwell in February last year.

He was sent home from work after becoming dizzy and struggling to breathe. At that time, he was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection.

He continued to struggle with dizziness, breathlessness and exhaustion for months and was told by medics the problem could be vertigo, an ear infection or neurological problems.

However in October Dean, from Bedlington, Northumberland, took a Covid-19 antibody test and it came back positive.

Since then, health professionals have agreed Dean is suffering from long Covid - which is now recognised as the lingering fatigue and illness that plagues sufferers in the aftermath of coronavirus.
