Craig Dillon, a digital strategist, was put into quarantine after returning from Australia via China.

He told Matt Frei that because he flew via China Southern Airways, doctors were concerned.

He said: "Well, then I kind of explained to them the symptoms and they said had I been to China and I said 'yes' and they dragged me back outside of the hospital and stuck a mask on me and took me into this isolation suite."

He said he was literally lifted out of the hospital.

He added: "They really did move fast to get me sort of isolated from everyone."

In the end, he didn't have Coronavirus.

He had pneumonia.
