Sharon Cook, who was hospitalised with Covid-19 on March 23, has warned people to stay at home to stop the spread of the virus.

The heart-rending video, which has racked up almost 1,000 shares in two hours, shows Sharon speaking about her symptoms and how much she misses her family.

The Cherry Willingham woman says she is now over the worst of the virus but is still in her own room at hospital after being diagnosed with sepsis pneumonia.

She said:

I thought I'd do a quick Vlog. I've been in hospital since March 23 with Covid-19. I was tested as positive but now that's getting better.

"Now I have sepsis pneumonia which is why I can't talk very well.

"I'm a bit breathless but I have oxygen so that's good.

"I just want people to know how important it is to stay at home it's not worth going out even if you miss your friends.

"I'm on the mend and I'm in my own room on two lots of antibiotics.

"I'm just struggling really to breath but apart from that I feel so much better than I did.

"I had a temperature and felt so ill for over two weeks.

"If someone gave me an injection to put me down I would've taken it.

"This is awful because I can't move or do anything because I have no breath - but at least I don't feel like I did."

"I'm really missing home and everybody. I feel sorry for myself.

"My main warning is for people to not go out because it's horrible.

"At least we can get over this and we'll have ages to do what we want to do.

"Hopefully I'll be home soon and it will all be okay.

"I thought I'd just let you know it's not like a little flu and although I know you can get milder cases it's still not nice.

"Hopefully next time I'll be okay and by the way I haven't washed my hair for over two weeks.

"Even if I had the stuff now I don't have the energy."
