In a video, shot in Hillingdon West London, a woman named Tara Jane Langston shared her experience after being tested positive for COVID19. The 38-year old woman filmed herself in the ICU in which she urges people not to take any chances when it comes to taking precautionary measures against the coronavirus.
In the video, Tara is seen with two tubes in her arms. She is also holding another breathing tube that she was using to speak while gasping for air.
Tara says in the video, “Anyone who is thinking of taking any chances, just take a look at me. I’m in the intensive care unit. I can’t breathe without this.”
She further says, “I’ve got a cannula, another cannula and a catheter. I’m actually ten times better right now than what I was before. I’ve lost count of the days. If anyone still smokes, put the cigarettes down, because I’m telling you now, you need your lungs and please none of you take any chances. Because if it gets really bad then you are going to end up here.”
