A nurse shows what Covid-19 with his body and warns other

The nurse Mike Schultz from San Francisco has shared two shocking photos on Instagram. Between the images, six weeks, 23 pounds of body weight and severity of the condition, the Covid-19. Schultz had been infected in mid-March at a Festival in Miami, as he “told Buzzfeed”. He was visiting a friend in Boston. Both determined, despite the Corona, the so-called winter festival in Miami.


I wanted to show everyone how badly being sedated for 6 weeks on a ventilator or intubated can be. Amongst other things, covid19 reduced my lung capacity with pneumonia. Over 8 weeks I’ve been away from family and friends is Getting stronger everyday and working to increase my lung capacity. I’ll get back to where I was in healthier ways this time;maybe even do cardio 😱. #covid19 #carona virus #recovery #godblessmynurses

“We knew that the Virus spread at the moment, but there were no restrictions, no curfew. We thought only a: Okay, we need to wash our hands more often and not see, that we touch our face,” says Schultz.

Shortly thereafter, the nurse 39 degrees got a fever and respiratory complaints. His friend took him to the hospital. Schultz’ lungs had filled with fluid. He was intubated. As he opened the next Time the eyes, were gone by four weeks. Instead of 86 weighed Schultz now 63 kilos. In total, he had to be six weeks intubated. Eight weeks ago, he couldn’t see his family and friends.

“I felt extremely weak. That was very frustrating. I could not hold my cell phone because it was so hard. And I could not type because my hands shook so strongly,” he says. He had decided to share the photos with the Public, to make on the seriousness of the disease. Under another photo on Instagram, he writes: “This disease is no joke, people. If you think you’re too young to get to you, think again.”

Schultz has survived the disease well, but of a full recovery, he is still far away. The he writes on Instagram, will still take months.
