A coronavirus survivor has described the harrowing two hours in which a fellow patient cried out for his family before he died alone. Craig Farley-Jones, 43, said the heartbreaking scenes he witnessed on the Covid-19 ward at Tameside General Hospital, in Ashton-under-Lyne, would stay with him forever. Mr Farley-Jones spoke about the horrors virus patients were going through in an attempt to encourage people to take the lockdown seriously, "stay at home and hold on to your loved ones". He spent six days battling the virus before being discharged from hospital on Sunday. The software and marketing company director, from Hyde, Greater Manchester, said: "Everyone in the ward looked like death, but the man in the bed opposite me, who was about 65 or 70, was relaxed and talkative to start with despite being on maximum oxygen. "Later that day I could see he was struggling to breathe and starting to panic. I could see he was getting distressed, so I buzzed the nurses, but they couldn't calm him down. Something had changed – his stats went off the scale and it was past the point of return for him. They gave him something to calm him down and called for his kids, as this was obviously his final night.
