Young Daniel’s lungs only function at 25% of their capacity, so when he tested positive for coronavirus, he was terrified. He managed to recover and wants to give hope.
A young man of 21 years, Daniel James Lacey, born in London, suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, it is a chronic lung disease that encourages the accumulation of thick mucus in those organs, since when testing positive in coronavirus, he was very afraid, since he was a patient in the group most at risk for the disease.
But now, after two weeks admitted to the hospital and quarantined at home, he has managed to overcome the virus and has wanted to send a message so that all infected people overcome their fear of the virus.
“I know that the vulnerable and at-risk people in the UK are afraid of what is happening, but I want to give them some hope. I have no idea how I got the virus, where or why, but I faced it and beat it. If someone, with lungs working at only 25 percent of their capacity and weakened by cystic fibrosis, could beat COVID-19, I am sure that many other people can too, “the young man told the British newspaper Daily Express.
The young Daniel said that he was afraid of dying, but that when he tested negative after his recovery, he wanted to call on people to trust his body and his immune system since it allows him to stay positive, and that makes a big difference in the body.
When he was four years old, Daniel was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. When he woke up one day and found that he had symptoms such as severe fever, he did not hesitate for a moment and went to the hospital, where he was transferred to Intensive Care since he was in the high risk group.
Luckily, Daniel’s symptoms gradually improved, and when he felt better, he asked the hospital directly to discharge him, since there would surely be other people in a worse situation, and he was occupying a space that other people could take advantage of. So the doctors decided to send him home in a special ambulance to complete his home confinement.
After an isolated time at home, the doctors came to his home to test him again for the coronavirus, and, finally, he tested negative. “Now I want to spread some hope. If you are diagnosed, take your time, and don’t think the worst,” concluded Daniel.
