Calum Wishart, a 25-year-old man who tested positive for coronavirus, has warned Scottish people to stay indoors instead of contracting the deadly disease.
Wishart is in the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary after suffering the ‘most horrendous week of his life’ with symptoms including fever, coughing fits, vomiting and diarrhea, Edinburgh News reports.
