Recovery: Ian Major (71) offered his ‘deepest appreciation’ to medical staff at Craigavon Hospital

A Northern Ireland man has told of the terrifying moment he feared he would die from Covid-19 – and of listening to the heartrending conversations medics were forced to have with those on the wards who were not going to survive.

Ian Major (71) also told of the £20 device that he believes could help to save the lives of some of those stricken with the virus by alerting them to the imminent danger they are in.

Warning that everyone needs to heed the official safety guidelines around the virus, the grandfather from Lurgan revealed how family members had to drive him to hospital as his condition worsened because no ambulances were available to take him there.
