Jozef Wallis, 40, ended up in an intensive care unit after contracting coronavirus.
On 11 March, the tech boss went for drinks in the evening. Not long afterwards, he began to feel light-headed and his joints were aching.
By the time he got home to Canada Water, south-east London, he was “shivering uncontrollably”, he said.
I curled up on the sofa feeling pretty unwell. That quickly escalated into a fever. I felt either freezing cold, or incredibly hot.
I had cold sweats and tingling sensations across my body.
Then there was the onset of a painful dry cough which left me gasping for air.
I really didn’t want to move at all.
I stayed home and self-isolated. I’m fairly fit and healthy. I had no underlying health conditions.
But several days later, I felt more weak and exhausted so my family called an ambulance.
I was admitted to the intensive care unit at St Thomas’s Hospital where they carried out tests.
About 30 hours later, I was told I had tested positive for COVID-19.
