A papa is convinced his teen son, who ended up in Birmingham Kid’s Healthcare facility fighting Covid-19, contracted coronavirus in OCTOBER.
Jeremy Barnett, from Skegness, states his child McKenzie was displaying the signs last year.
The 14- year-old’s kidney started to stop working in October last year, and dad Jeremy told LincolnshireLive: “He didn’t have anything wrong with him previously.
” It began with going to school. He got an actually bad cough which worsened and worse.
” After two weeks at home we felt we had no choice but to take him to medical facility.
” I needed to carry him into the healthcare facility in Boston, he might barely walk.
” It was dreadful to see him like that.”
He included: “He almost died about five times – they had to put him on a ventilator – and he was moved to Birmingham Children’s Healthcare facility.
” They brought my kid back – I’m so grateful to the doctors and nurses there, they were ten out of ten.”
After this McKenzie spent 3 months in healthcare facility recuperating and recuperating from the health problem.
” He had to have physiotherapy three times a day,” he stated.
In Birmingham Kid’s Hospital McKenzie was detected with Pneumocytis pneumonia (PCP), an uncommon type of the disease caused by a fungi that can affect people with weakened body immune systems.
Nevertheless, Jeremy states he is skeptical by the diagnosis and wants his boy to have an antibody test to show whether he’s had Covid-19
” Every aspect of what McKenzie was like when he was ill matched coronavirus,” he said.
