  1. This is what happens when newspapers die. They jump on to social media and use false headlines like this one as a desperate attempt to get clicks. I took the bait. Shame on me.

  2. Thank you for sharing your story. As a Mom of a 30-year-old, it hits home. That’s the lesson here- it can hit home. And when it does a positive outcome is not guaranteed. Happy that you and your family can celebrate. Wishing you many years of good health!

  3. What a cutie: big, warm brown eyes – such a sweet face. I’d love to hug him like a teddy bear. Glad you’re better. Hope you pull through completely healthy.

  4. If you’re obese (30+ lbs overweight) you are even more at risk no matter what age you are. Many younger people in the US eat junk food and are obese and unhealthy and that’s why more young die in the US from COVID19 than any other country. In Italy it’s mostly 80 year olds but in the US many are YOUNG.

  5. Francis, thanks for sharing your story! It takes a lot of courage and love for others to come out and discuss your personal testimony. Glad you made it through and warning the young. May you continue to heal and stay well.

  6. Man, I’m really happy you survived, being here with us! A lot of people would be ruined if they lost you. Your video has pleased thousands of people and I’m among them. I wish you good luck and health, enjoy life, my friend.

  7. Yes, you and the rest of the population are going to die one day anyway.

    Yes, swathes of people die every year from other illnesses.

    Yes, this man didn’t actually die, and he is in the smaller percentage of people that won’t. You most likely are too.

    Yes, the news shouldn’t be instilling fear into the public.

    And who knows, maybe parts of his story aren’t exactly accurate.

    But put yourself in his shoes for a moment, or in someone else who is battling this’s shoes for just a moment.

    Maybe youre hooked up to a ventilator, maybe encased partly in a large glass box to prevent coughing on the one nurse who scuttles in and out of your room. She’s the only person you’ve seen for the last week, and there’s a good chance she could be the last.

    Your family is beyond worried about you, but they are not allowed to see you, and you miss them dearly.

    You’re slowly suffocating and nobody can tell you for sure that it’s actually going to be okay.

    Put yourself in those shoes for a moment.

    Nobody deserves to die like that. No one. Not this man, not someone already suffering from some other illness, not the 80-year-old man who is close to his last legs anyway.

    You don’t know for certain that it won’t infect you, and you don’t know for certain it won’t be bad. Truly nobody actually really can say. If the death rate for younger people is 0.1 percent, that means younger people still can die. That number isn’t zero. You could have any number of medical issues that you don’t know about, too. Just because a doctor hasn’t told you they’re there doesn’t mean they aren’t.

    Perhaps the Washington Post isn’t the best place to look for news, but the fact remains that this is still happening globally, and it doesn’t matter where you look, people seem to be quick to take a very coldhearted approach to all of this.

    Since when did this country become so self-centered?

    • Hahaha sorry! I was stuck using my cruddy iPhone 7 for this video, while in a room with a very loud machine blowing air out of the room. Not ideal 🙁

  8. Glad he survived the ventilator-
    Medical doctors and scientists are claiming it’s the wrong treatment and is responsible for people dying.
    Just sayin.. look it up- do the research.

    • I noticed that too. 80 percent of people on ventilators die. That’s not a good success rate for treatment. I wonder if more than 20 percent would have survived without

  9. My 35 yr old healthy cousinnin Arizona tested positive for covid and never had mire than a mild cough. Says it felt like a weak cold that lasted for 3 days than he revovered and felt normal

  10. Covid taste 😆 a bad coronavirus aka the common cold will do the same, Covid taste 😆😂🤣🤦🏼‍♂️ CAPS is a thing you know 🤦🏼‍♂️ lot’s of people get it every year.

  11. God bless you, so glad to hear your story of pulling through. My dad died within one week of his confirmed Covid diagnosis and life hasn’t been the same for my family. I’m just now getting around to watching positive stories about people who survived 🙏🏽

  12. You’re going to make it but it’s not over. My friend, a nurse, has been fighting this for 2 months. Be careful. Don’t push yourself. Listen to your body. I wish you the best.
