What could these symptoms mean?
Dr Pratsides explained: “These signs mean you are no longer getting enough oxygen and could be experiencing acute respiratory distress syndrome, a life threatening condition characterised by severe lung inflammation.”
According to Dr Pratsides, if you are experiencing these critical signs it is important to seek immediate medical help by calling 999.
“Even with critical Covid, if you get hospital treatment quickly you have a chance of survival and recovery.”
