Two-time Major champion Greg Norman has returned to the hospital for further treatment after he tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
The Australian, who now lives in the United States, was admitted on Christmas Day after experiencing a number of Covid-related symptoms before being released again on Saturday to self-isolate at home in Florida.
The 65-year-old competed at last weekend’s PNC Championship with his son, Greg Norman Jnr, where the pair initially tested negative for the coronavirus.
But, both have since returned positive results for the virus with Norman Snr now receiving antibody injections at hospital.
‘Now back in hospital after getting a positive result on my PCR CoVid test. Getting an infusion of Bamlanivimab antibody. The path to full recovery. Hoping to be out later today,’ Norman wrote in an Instagram post.
Norman has since Friday explained the symptoms he has been experiencing and made a public call to not take the coronavirus lightly.
‘Also to all out there, please take this very very serious. If you get it, the variations and intensity of symptoms varies from person to person. I am fit and strong and have a high tolerance for pain but this virus kicked the crap out of me like nothing I have ever experienced before. Muscle and joint pain on another level.
‘Headaches that feel like a chisel going through your head scrapping little bits off each time, fever, muscles that just did not want to work like yesterday walking my dog Apollo my quads and hip flexors just did not want to work due to fatigue. Then my taste failed where beer tastes bad and wine the same. And finally at times struggling with memory of names and things,’ he added.
