A nurse from Gallatin Tennessee, who is battling the Coronavirus warns that the virus is “no joke,” while comparing the pain to that of a gunshot wound.
Shareka Williams shared a video to Facebook where she struggled to breathe while talking, her mission is to enlist into the public the severity of the virus.
“I just want to tell you, don’t take this as a joke. This is not a joke. You can’t see your family, you can barely talk, trying to do everything you can to stay sane.”
“Doesn’t matter your color, or your age, your health condition, this is no joke, stay at home if you don’t have to go out, stay at home.”
Williams is currently staying away from her kids until she hopefully recovers. In her video she describes the pain from breathing to a gunshot wound.
“I never felt a gunshot, but this is probably worse than a gunshot,” Williams added. “It hurts, and it hurts like hell. Sometimes God will take you out of your comfort zone. Right now, I trust God with my life.”
She goes on to explain the more serious symptoms of the virus while urging people to stay home.
“You can barely eat, you can barely walk. You can’t breathe because it hurts so bad,” Williams says. “I’m not angry, I’m not mad, I’m hurting. But I know in due time God will deliver. This is my journey. This is my testimony.”
Currently, there are 2,900 people infected with the virus in Tennessee and 24 people have died.
