Piers Morgan says Covid has caused 'detachment' in eye as symptoms continue four weeks on

Piers Morgan believes he caught coronavirus last month after attending the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium. He has since been suffering from many symptoms including a cough, fatigue and loss of taste.

The 56-year-old has today revealed he is suffering from a “posterior vitreous detachment” in his left eye.

The condition occurs when the gel that fills the eyeball separates from the retina.

According to the Royal National Institute of Blind People, PVD isn’t painful and it doesn’t cause sight loss, but you may have symptoms such as seeing floaters (small dark spots or shapes) and flashing lights.

In view of his 7.9 million followers, he wrote: “28-day Covid update: a new treat – aside from ongoing tedious fatigue & inability to taste wine, all the coughing’s caused a ‘posterior vitreous detachment’ in my left eye.

He tweeted: “Another tragic, needless anti-vaxxer Covid death.

“I’m the same age as this guy, and got the virus around the same time.

“Neither of us had underlying conditions. Only difference is I was fully vaccinated. GET JABBED.”

The broadcaster believes he caught the virus after thousands of ticketless fans stormed into Wembley Stadium for the Euro 2020 final.

Piers said he developed symptoms two days after the event, which included a fever, chills, violent coughing and sneezing fits.
