Victorian COVID-19 Delta strain survivor tells community ‘just get vaccinated’

  • Richard had received his first dose of AstraZeneca when he was infected
  • He was admitted to intensive care on the seventh day of his illness, and lost 15 kilograms of muscle mass
  • He has urged everyone to help convince hesitant relatives and friends of the need for vaccinations

“In terms of what I’m able to do physically, if I stand up at the edge of the bed for a minute I will be breathless for two or three minutes … and that is with oxygen flow,” Richard said.

“You do everything right, I wore masks, I QR coded, I was cautious … and yet this can happen to you,” he said.

“It’s safe, it works, it will give you peace of mind. Convince your relatives, convince your friends.”
