According to health.gov.au, while a negative coronavirus test may come as a relief, Sean’s symptoms will still need to be carefully monitored and he could be required to be tested again.
Hours before receiving the result, Tammin confirmed that her husband was still ‘really weak’ and had lost ’15 pounds in two weeks,’ or 6.8kg.
‘Once you’re past the scary phase and your loved one is OK, it’s still such a disruption to your life, and your kid’s lives and the person who is sick’s life,’ she said.
She added that everyone needs to realise the virus is ‘still around’, saying: ‘This is almost a year, and I never thought after a year that this would still be affecting us.’

‘It was rough and touch and go. All the hospitals are full and his fever of 103 wouldn’t break for days and it got to a very scary place.
‘Covid is real. It’s scary and I now see it first hand. I’ve been really scared and in a dark place… I’m struggling and I love you all and this community.’
