Radio producer Sami Lukis has revealed the shocking response she received from friends after telling them she caught Covid-19.

While many often deter away from those who have Covid-19, the 51-year-old media personality from Sydney was surprised when her friends asked to pay her a visit to catch the disease. 

Sami explained many now seem ‘ready and willing’ to catch the virus as long as it doesn’t interfere with any pre-planned social events. 

‘The thing that did shock me was the response from friends when I told them I had COVID: ‘Sorry to hear that, Hon, but would you mind I pop over and give you a hug, so I can get it too and just get this over with?’ Sami told 9Honey.

‘Yep, this is where we’re at. People aren’t scared of COVID anymore – they just don’t want it to interfere with their plans,’ she said. 

Thankfully Sami did not end up in hospital but did experience symptoms that ‘knocked her out’ – including three days of bad headaches, coughing, a runny nose, body aches and night sweats.

‘Dragging myself out of bed to walk the ten steps to the bathroom was debilitating, and I lost all taste and smell for about a week. In summary: it wasn’t fun, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone,’ she said. 

'Yep, this is where we're at. People aren't scared of COVID anymore - they just don't want it to interfere with their plans,' she said

Despite the joking whit of the commends from friends and the blasé attitude, Sami didn’t seem impressed knowing families around the world have lost loved ones due to Covid. 

‘If you think you don’t really care about catching COVID, please think of the vulnerable, the elderly and the immunocompromised, who are at a much higher risk of getting seriously ill if they get it,’ she said. 

Catching Covid-19 also comes with risks as the virus effects everyone differently.

Today in New South Wales there was a total of 25,870 new Covid-19 cases while in Victoria there was 37,994. 

Anyone who has Covid-19 symptoms needs to have a Covid-19 PCR or RAT test.
