Cervical cancer, Lynsey Bennett, tests positive for Covid-19

Cervical cancer campaigner Lynsey Bennett has tested positive for Covid-19.

The Longford native shared a picture of her positive PCR test results to her Instagram followers and said she plans to use her time out of «thinking.»

Lynsey, who was told by doctors last year that she had only six to eight months to live after her cervical cancer diagnosis, admitted that self-isolation was an «absolute breeze» for her because she used to lie in a hospital bed by herself.

During an online Q&A, the 33-year-old said: «Fortunately, I find solitude an absolute breeze because I use [sic] For years of lying in a hospital bed alone in a room away from anyone with hardly any visitors…so this is better because it’s my home and I tell myself it won’t last forever.”

She added that she was «not sure» how she contracted the virus because she had not been outside much in the past week.

«I didn’t go out, or even shop a lot or mingle last week, and I didn’t have anyone to be around,» she explained.

She revealed that Hailey had already had Covid previously, but Zoe did not.

«Girls Are Good…» started.

“The last few days have been Christmas with their dads so Zoe won’t be back until Wednesday but Hayley will be back today.

“Once Zoe continues to test negative we hope she can go back to school and Hailey will just have to continue to isolate with me and then come back.

“Hopefully I am past the contagious stage but I will still try to keep as much distance as possible when you are at home. She had Covid for nearly two months and it was not a loss to her.”
