The Chase’s Paul Sinha ‘has coronavirus’ but didn’t ‘self-isolate early enough’

The Chase star Paul Sinha has taken to social media to claim that he believes he has coronavirus.

Sinha, 49, voiced his concerns with his Twitter followers as the deadly COVID-19 virus continues to sweep the globe and the death toll rockets.

Comedian and former GP Sinha was also diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in June last year.

He warned his followers that he fears he started social distancing "a few days too late" after he believes he was struck down by the illness.

In true Sinha-man style, he joked at the situation claiming he would sneeze in people's homes if they dared to upset him.

Alerting his 143,000 Twitter followers, the brainy quizzer tweeted: "Although I cant be sure and i cant be tested it seems likely I have Coronavirus.

"Started social distancing a few days too late. Anyone upsets me; I'll be around to sneeze in your home."

Fans instantly flooded the replies section of his tweet with one saying: "Get well soon Paul. sending virtual whatever you need."

While a second tweeted: "Get well soon Paul."

A third replied: "Oh no, get well soon and hopefully have a speedy recovery."

Since receiving his Parkinson's diagnosis, the doctor claims that he no longer has any sense of fear and will battle the disease.

Speaking to The Guardian he said: "The thing that has changed most since the diagnosis is that I've lost my fear.

"I've always been one of those comics who doesn't say much on panel shows because I’m terrified of saying the wrong thing or offending the wrong person.

"But now, I've lost all that. I've got the exaggerated carpe diem that a lot of people get with their diagnosis."
