Pregnant Covid denier admits she was wrong as she struggles to breathe

A pregnant former Covid-denier has backtracked massively after the virus took away her sense of taste and smell and left her struggling to breathe.

Tori Howell, 28, of the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire says she wants to take back her previous claims that Covid-19 is ‘fake’ and a ‘hoax.’

Tori, who is 22 weeks pregnant, started to develop symptoms of the illness on Sunday evening and tested positive on Wednesday.

She’s now feeling breathless and is being constantly monitored by her GP, in case she needs to be admitted to hospital.

‘I used to listen to every conspiracy theory and believed everything against the reality of what I know now,’ she said.

‘I had been poorly since Sunday and lost my sense of taste and smell. It started with a cold and headache and then sickness.

‘Now I am really breathless. I am on steroids and antibiotics as I am asthmatic anyway.’

She said that despite her illness her unborn baby seems to be doing well.

‘There are no concerns about the baby at the moment. In fact he has never moved so much which is good.’

She has not been admitted to hospital but is in close contact with her GP and has to monitor her lung output and send results to the doctor.

‘I have to take my observations and send them through online and a doctor will give me a call to check that I am okay. They have been really good.

‘I read so many things online about the virus and I honestly thought it was a load of rubbish as for months I did not know anyone with it.

‘On Monday I thought to myself that this cold was not normal. Sounds crazy but it tastes different.

‘I took a test to be on the safe side and I was not expecting it to come back positive. This virus is real. I take back all I ever said before.

‘My message to people is to please stay home. The NHS has been brilliant but I would not wish this on anyone.’
