A mother who shared a powerful image of her Lil baby rigged up in a hospital to get others to stay at home.
Mum Sarah Marsh from Hertfordshire, posted in March the news of her baby son ‘Tommy’ had caught the virus.
she wrote “I was never going to share this picture because it’s not a nice picture this is what covid-19 pneumonia done to my baby ….this is him at he’s poorliest just before an intensive care doctor came to assess him to see if he needed ventilation or not …. Thankfully he didn’t and made a full recovery… If this photo makes just 1 person stay inside or keep their kid in then it was worth sharing !!! “ STAY THE F*** IN !!!!!
The photo was shared over Sixty Six thousand times. And Eleven Thousand comments from well-wishers.
Pamela commented “Thankyou for Sharing such a heartbreaking image, how much more suffering do people need to see to make them take notice of the warnings, so glad your little boy is now doing well, keep safe and well xxx”
Dave commented “Horrific! The idiots who ignore the advice don’t only risk their health but the health of innocent people. To reiterate the slogan familiar to many in the eighties “Don’t die of Ignorance ““
Mum Sarah went on to write “Tommy was vulnerable due to prematurity and I always knew when it hit him it would make him really poorly … but the Drs have told me to assume the rest of the house has had covid-19 as we’ve all been displaying the minorist symptoms and we genuinely wouldn’t of known it was covid we had had if it wasn’t for tommy testing positive.
All I will say is
Yes kids can get it
Yes kids can show the minor of symptoms
They can also show the worst of symptoms
You can stay with them if their hospitalised
They can make a full recovery.”
Her post on facebook was overwhelmed with comments with “such good news he is recovering and ok”
He’s made a full recovery and you would never know he had been so poorly. But your loved 1 might not be so lucky !! So please please please stay inside unless it’s absolutely necessary to go out !!
Thank you for your kindness love me & Tommy stay safe
