A Dutchman begs the public to take the vaccine after spending months being intubated and shocked at losing 8 toes to COVID.

Out of fear of reaction from COVID-19 skeptics and anti-vaxxers, Eric, 62, requested that just his first name be published. He claims he has no recollection of his wife transporting him to the University of Alberta Hospital on the first night. That happened on December 30, 2020.
Eric awoke three months later from an artificial coma, but his difficulties had just just begun. Eric’s story will be verified by Alberta Health Services.

His story was confirmed by an AHS spokesman. He’d been on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) equipment for five weeks to keep him alive. That equipment cost a lot of money. Eric estimated that he had a 10% chance of surviving. “I’m a stubborn Dutchman who refuses to give up. It took a fingertip and eight toes, but I made it.” On June 7, those limbs had to be amputated because they had turned necrotic, or black and lifeless

“Of course, you’re on a ventilator for a few months after that,” he explained. “It’s impossible for you to speak. I wasn’t able to move my arms at all at first.” “I can’t tell you how painful it was to lay there, unable to speak or move.” “My wife has been through a lot. ‘I don’t believe he’s going to make it,’ the doctors told her on several occasions.” Eric, on the other hand, was successful in reaching his destination.

Staff at the University of Alberta Hospital gave him a special send-off as he departed the intensive care unit. “Unbeknownst to my wife or me, all of the people who had anything to do with me were physicians, nurses, and therapists,” he claimed. “They formed a long queue that stretched the entire length of the corridor. They were also clapping as I passed by.” “That was simply wonderful. At the time, I was the COVID inmate who had spent the most time there.”

Eric claims that his muscles are now 40% of what they were before COVID-19, despite being immobile for ten months. Eric was released from the hospital on Wednesday and has begun rehabilitation at Glenrose Hospital, but he still has a long way to go.

To keep his oxygen levels up, he still needs assistance from a machine. He can’t walk on his own yet. So, Eric is now concentrating on his recovery and spreading his message. “I’d like people to understand that this is a genuine virus. This isn’t a fabrication. There isn’t any sort of plot going on here “He expressed himself. “I had no difficulties before this happened, and anyone can acquire it if a healthy person can get it.”

According to a new study published in Health Affairs, the early COVID-19 vaccination program  averted about 140,000 fatalities by the second week of May 2021. In addition, roughly 3 million instances of the illness may have been avoided.
