2GB and 4BC host Deb Knight returns negative COVID-19 result
Deb Knight has returned a negative COVID-19 result after developing mild symptoms.
Knight told Afternoons replacement hosts Peta Credlin and Clinton Maynard that she decided to get tested after developing a sore throat and headache on Wednesday (June 24).
“Here I was reporting all day on the situation in Victoria … and I thought ‘look, I’m going to have to bite the bullet here’,” Knight explained.
“If I’m feeling crook, I can’t just sort of soldier on.”
Despite experiencing fairly mild symptoms, the 2GB and 4BC host said it was important to put her mind, and her colleagues’, at ease.
“It is a wake-up call for all of us. We don’t know who’s got it and who’s spreading it, so you’ve got to get the test,” she said.
