The Doctors speak with a former COVID denier, who thought the possibly-fatal virus was not real until he contracted it. He is now urging others to take the virus seriously and wear a mask and stay distanced from others.
Ruben, a fitness trainer, tells Dr. Ian Smith, believed he could "overcome anything" including COVID. He explains he began developing symptoms that continued for nearly 10 days and none of his home remedies seemed to be doing anything. He checked into the hospital when he lost his sense of taste.
Soon after, his lungs began to collapse and he had to be intubated and put on a ventilator. He was put into a coma for 5 days and his doctor was not sure he was going to survive. Thankfully, he recovered and is now advocating for others to take the necessary COVID precautions.
"[Some people] don't seem to get it, until they get, it's unfortunate," Ruben says of COVID-19, admitting he let his ego and pride get in the way of his safety. He adds, "This is real."
