Joanna Burgess has revealed that she and her football star husband George Burgess were both recently struck down with Covid-19

But while Joanna, 31, experienced the illness as little more than a cold, George, 29, struggled to breathe and needed a visit from a doctor in full protective gear. 

‘We also had to go through a two-week self-isolation with the kids when both my husband and I contracted Covid-19,’ she tells The Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

‘For me it felt like a horrible head cold that lasted a few days. George was worse than I was, and he found it difficult to breathe at one point,’ she added. 

‘We had a doctor come out to our house dressed in a fully covered medical body suit. They checked George’s oxygen levels and completed a few tests. 

‘Our children never caught the virus from us, but it was a little scary because I thought if we got seriously ill or were hospitalised, where would our children go?’

She is locked down with Birdie, two, and Blainey, one, amid reports her husband has signed a two-year contract with the St George Illawarra Dragons.  

The family had relocated to the UK in 2019, after George – who formerly played as a prop for the South Sydney Rabbitohs – signed a three-year deal with England’s Wigan Warriors.

He played eight times in the 2020 season, before leaving the club due to an ongoing hip injury.
