A British mom suffering from COVID-19 in intensive care described the deadly virus as like having “glass in your lungs” — as she urged others not to take any chances amid the pandemic.

Tara Jane Langston, 39, a waitress, was initially diagnosed with a chest infection — but her condition worsened until she was rushed to west London’s Hillingdon Hospital, where she has been for about a week, according to Metro UK.

In a WhatsApp video she shared with colleagues — which has since circulated on Facebook and gone viral — she is shown in her hospital bed hooked up to various breathing tubes.

“Anyone who is thinking of taking any chances, just take a look at me,” she said, with labored breathing. “I’m in the intensive care unit. I can’t breathe without this.”

“They’ve had to sew that into my artery,” she said, lifting her arm. “I’ve got a cannula, another cannula and a catheter. I’m actually 10 times better than what I was before. I’ve lost count of the days.”

“If anyone still smokes, put the cigarettes down because I’m telling you now, you need your f–king lungs,” she warned viewers. “And, please, none of you take any chances, I mean it, because if it gets really bad, then you’re going to end up here.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Langston compared her experience with the coronavirus to having “glass in your lungs,” leaving every breath “a battle.”

“When I was taken into intensive care, they originally planned to sedate me and keep me in intubation because my body had gone through it all for the best part of a week and I was shattered,” she told the outlet.

Langston first started feeling sick after a trip to Krakow, Poland, with her husband, Richard, and two daughters, she told the Mail.

She was prescribed antibiotics for her chest infection — which she coupled with ibuprofen and acetaminophen, according to the report.

But she said the ibuprofen may have exacerbated her symptoms.

Langston, who is fit and goes to the gym regularly, said she recorded the video to point out that it’s not only the elderly or those with underlying conditions who can suffer from the widespread infection.

“There were two other patients with me in the ICU, both of who were being intubated,” she told the outlet. “One was quite a large man who I’d say was about late 50s or early 60s and the other was a lady roughly the same age. So these were not elderly people.”

“That was my reasoning behind doing that video,” she said, “to warn that younger people are susceptible too.”
