How Viagra help saved Monica Almeida an NHS nurse who spent 45-day in coma after contracting covid-19

An NHS worker who had been in a coma for 45 days miraculously awoke on Christmas Day.

After acquiring Covid-19, the 37-year-old nurse spent 45 days struggling for her life, but she was revived after being given Viagra.

Reports Gathered said she was gravely ill and only 72 hours away from having her ventilator switched off when physicians decided to give her a heavy dose of an erectile dysfunction medicine.

Her breathing improved within days, and the amount of oxygen she required was cut in half.

‘It was absolutely the Viagra that rescued me,’ the mother of two told the newspaper. It freed up my airways and my lungs began to respond within 48 hours.

‘The medication increases your blood arteries,’ says the author. My airbags required a little support because I had asthma.’

After over two months in a hospital bed following the experimental therapy, the specialist respiratory nurse from Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, returned home for Christmas to celebrate with her family.

Ms Almeida has now praised the creative staff at Lincoln County Hospital for giving her Viagra and – ultimately – saving her life.

She said: ‘I had a little joke with the consultant after I came round because I knew him.

‘He told me it was the Viagra, I laughed and thought he was joking, but he said ‘no, really, you’ve had a large dose of Viagra. It was my little Christmas miracle.’

Ms Almeida, who is also asthmatic, is now on the road to recovery, but doctors told her that if she had not been double-jabbed, she would have died.

She tested positive for Covid-19 back in October and within days she lost her sense of smell and taste before starting to cough blood.

But when the nurse went to A&E, she was discharged with a prescription and no treatment.

Within two hours of being home, Ms Almeida woke up coughing and could not breathe properly so her husband called 999.

She was taken to the ICU and placed in a coma on November 16 with her condition so severe, her parents were told to fly from Portugal to say their final goodbyes.
