Wolverhampton coronavirus man Alan Steele released from hospital
Honeymooner Alan Steele has been released from hospital after continuing to show no symptoms of coronavirus.
But today he has revealed he may have to spend a further two weeks in quarantine when he returns home.
Lorry driver Mr Steele, from Tettenhall, in Wolverhampton, was moved to hospital in Tokyo on February 6 after testing positive for the virus, while his new wife Wendy remained on board cruise liner Diamond Princess.
Despite testing positive, Mr Steele never showed the symptoms of having coronavirus and is thought to have just been a carrier.
He continued to test negative and has now revealed he has been released from hospital – sharing photos from his five-star hotel.
On Wednesday, he also shared a photo on Facebook of a McDonald's meal, after nearly two weeks of hospital meals.
He said: "Informed we will have to do another two weeks quarantine back in blighty, although Japan has set me free as all ok.
"Heard Britain would send a plane Friday but are still discussing it. It is a12 hour flight so crew will need a 12 hour layover before flying back so they better stop talking and get on with it."
He is now set to wait for his wife until the quarantine on the ship ends.
On Monday, Alan praised and thanked the staff and crew on the cruise ship where his wife is.
