Langston was described as a healthy gym goer, however she was rushed to hospital last Friday after being diagnosed with COVID-19. In the video, Langston can be seen with a breathing tube, saying she can’t breathe without it and says that “it’s like having glass in your lungs.”
Pleading everyone to take coronavirus seriously, she says, “If anyone is thinking of taking any chances, just take a look at me … Because if it gets really bad, then you’re going to end up here.”
Watch the video:
‘If anyone still smokes, put the cigarettes down because I’m telling you now, you need your lungs. Please, none of you take any chances,’ she added while choking and struggling to breathe.
Langston also confessed that just like many people, she too thought that the coronavirus was all hyped up. She went on to issue a reminder to all, saying people should self-isolate as it was the only way.
“I had that attitude before of: ‘It’s a load of nonsense, it’s just being all hyped up’ before I got this. I wasn’t one to buy into all the hysteria. But then I got the coronavirus and I never again want to experience anything like it because it was a deeply unpleasant experience.”
Thankfully, she is now recovering from her ordeal after catching the virus, which has killed around 140 people in Britain.
