Powerful real-life storytelling on Facebook is content of the week

Telford & Wrekin Council is sharing a COVID-19 update. 4d · ‼️ THIS IS REAL ‼️ Below is a story from Sharn who is 34 years old, a fit and healthy mother of two children and lives in Telford. We asked if we could share her story to show everyone that Covid is real, it's here in Telford & Wrekin and could put any one of us in hospital. Cases are still rising rapidly locally and it is now so IMPORTANT we all follow guidelines to keep everyone safe. One mistake could cost someone else's life: 🏠 STAY AT HOME - only leave your house for essential items such as food or medication, work or to help someone vulnerable. ❌ DO NOT MIX HOUSEHOLDS (unless you are part of a support bubble) ❌ DO NOT TRAVEL FOR EXERCISE - You should exercise near to home. Read Sharn's story below 👇 So the first picture here was 26th Dec I felt perfectly well had a lovely day with my daughter. Woke up 27th took tree down then got a head ache that's all!! I went for a test and dropped kids to their dad for them to be safe. I haven't set eyes on my children since! I stayed home alone for 7 days trying to beat it but Covid had other ideas. I was admitted last Sunday and Tuesday I thought I was leaving in a box as I couldn't breathe unattended!! I have never been so scared and alone in my life thinking you are never going to see your children again is torture. Fortunately I'm getting stronger everyday so will be home soon. Sadly not everyone is as fortunate so many bodies leaving this hospital it's awful. The staff are worth their weight in gold true heroes I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them!! I owe them my life!! Things can change so quickly in life appreciate everything. TAKE THIS VIRUS SERIOUSLY GUYS ❤️ Get well soon Sharn ❤️
