A former Warrenpoint striker has urged the public to take coronavirus seriously after spending eight days in hospital "hooked up to oxygen" after receiving a Covid-19 diagnosis.
Lee Duffy spent eight days in hospital "hooked up to oxygen" with Covid-19 before making a recovery.
The 28-year-old said he could "no longer breathe on my own, scared not knowing what was going to happen.
"Luckily I got through it and I’m starting to feel a lot better now," he said.
Warrenpoint wished Duffy, who played for Newry City until January, a full recovery, saying "thankfully" he is on the mend.
"Lee is a young very fit 28 year old. Please take this virus seriously. It attacks all ages," they said. "Lee is in our thoughts and we pray for his continued recovery."
A Linfield player tested positive for coronavirus earlier this month. Meanwhile, all Irish League fixtures have been suspended until at least 4 April.
