A Fermanagh woman who has been in self-isolation for the past five days after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus has been refused a test for the disease.

Author Laura Quinn, a mother-of-two from Enniskillen, says she needs medical attention after displaying the symptoms of Covid-19 for most of the past week.  

In an emotional interview with The Impartial Reporter this morning (Sunday), Laura broke down in tears as she spoke of her fear. She is currently at home alone after sending her husband and two children to stay elsewhere. 

"I want some kind of medical attention, I have been here for five days on my own," she said.
