A young coronavirus survivor in Melbourne has been testing positive for the coronavirus for a month, and it's brought with it some bizarre and gross symptoms.
Tina Dinh got sick on Sunday, July 26, but three days later her condition had deteriorated so badly that an ambulance rushed her to hospital.
The 26-year-old was in the Intensive Care Unit for a week. After a struggle, she came through and was released from hospital last week.
Although the worst is behind Dinh, she has revealed some persistent symptoms that she can't seem to shake, almost a month later.

"I have Covid taste in my mouth," she told the Herald Sun.
"It has a metallic taste and it just doesn't go away. I even woke up at 4am this morning just to brush my teeth because I couldn't deal with it."
Dinh also lost her sense of smell. Her body was plagued by constant chills before she was rushed to the Footscray Hospital in Melbourne.
Dinh is not the first Covid survivor to experience strange symptoms from the disease.
This week, actress Alyssa Milano revealed her months-long struggle with the coronavirus, and also a strange and scary side effect she's been suffering from — hair loss.
The former Charmed star, 47, first went public with her coronavirus diagnosis last week, revealing she felt like she "was dying" after contracting the virus several months ago.
The actress has taken photos of her hair loss and showed them to her fans, to their horror.
