Ms Power remained behind while she waited for approval of her travel visa, when she was struck down by the virus.

The young nanny initially suffered from slight fatigue, shortness of breath and loss of taste and smell.

In just 14 days her symptoms worsened and Ms Power was rushed to hospital for an x-ray.

'They said my lungs had been damaged from having Covid,' Ms Power said.

'Despite being 26 and never having smoked - I don't even drink alcohol - my lungs looked like someone who had smoked for 20 years.'

Ms Power was discharged and relied on the charity of friends to order her food and check in on her.

Though she suffered another attack and returned to hospital, before she claimed the doctor told her to not come back unless she was 'dying'.

She Only Has One Good Lung. She Can’t Get the Vaccine.

  She Only Has One Good Lung. She Can’t Get the Vaccine. Like many Americans, Madonna Laws-Lowell has mixed feelings about the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Hope. Anger. Despair. Confusion. The difference: Laws-Lowell, 53, has only one functioning lung and is still in the monitoring stage after she underwent surgery, and then chemotherapy, for colorectal cancer in 2019. “My lungs could not withstand COVID,” she told The Daily Beast. An orchid enthusiast based in St. Louis, Missouri, Laws-Lowell is finding the uncertainty surrounding when she might get vaccinated to be almost as unbearable as the pandemic itself.And she finds the pandemic extremely unbearable.

The total number of coronavirus cases in the UK has skyrocketed above three million as a Covid-19 variant, which is 70 per cent more infectious, ravages the country.

Hospitals are under intense strain with London buses turned into ambulances to deal with the uptick in cases.

Ms Power said her friends waited as long as 12 hours for an ambulance to show up at the door.

Ms Power has now moved into her uncle's home, an hour south of London, and has plans to fly back to New Zealand in February.

'I'm so lucky I will be home in a month, which will give me enough time to work up to walking to the plane,' Ms Power said.
