She appeared on the BBC2 show, which gives people amazing visual representations of their condition – and witnesses exactly happened to Derek’s lungs.
Kate’s husband Derek caught Covid very early on the in pandemic and spent 374 days in hospital.
He is still very ill after suffering organ failure and clots on his lung. He may also never be able to walk again because the tendons and muscles in his legs have seized up from having been in an induced coma for so long.
Kate met with Rozi, a grandma of 23 grandchildren, who wanted to find out why coronavirus had hit her so hard and shared her own experiences with her.
Rozi was struck with the virus in the summer, after a holiday with her family.
She ended up being taken to hospital by her husband Jonny while struggling to breathe, and she didn’t reemerge for almost a fortnight.
She told Kate: “I never felt so bad in my life. I just thought to myself I’m never coming out of here.”
Kate saw a detailed augmented reality depictions of Rozi’s lungs, created using hospital scans when her body was in the throes of a severe Covid infection.
Rozi gasped while looking at the images, full of bright orange “angry” Covid.
The doctor who treated her in hospital told her more than a quarter of her air sacs had filled with fluid, mucus and dead cells, which left her struggling to breathe.
