The 39-year-old mother of two felt dizzy and lost her sense of taste and smell.
“When I got the positive test, I thought: ‘Okay, this is maybe how it’s going to be for the next few days and then I’ll pick up.’
“What happened to me was that, by day 14, whenever you usually expect to feel better, I actually was a lot worse.”
Five weeks later, however, and Rebecca was still not feeling better.
Now, more than six months later, she still suffers from breathlessness, “brain fog” and has to take daily naps.
Rebecca believes she has so-called long Covid – a term being used to describe a range of symptoms identified in people months after they have had the virus.
