Brian May details Covid-19 ‘terrible’ battle as he begs fans to get vaccinated

In a series of posts and videos on Instagram, the 74-year-old has documented how he was affected by the coronavirus in recent days.

Through an Instagram post over the weekend, May said he and his wife, Anita Dobson, had recently decided to go to a birthday lunch with some friends.

He told followers that lunch seemed like a “safe situation” as he had taken it a side leak test that morning and he and Dobson were both vaccinated. But he added that as the Omicron variant spreads across the UK at a rapid pace, the couple was taking a “risk” of attending a party.

The Queen guitarist then sent a direct message to “the few of you out there who have not had this” – about contracting the virus – about what it has felt for her since the positive test. He described some of the days as “terrible” and said it was like having “the worst flu you can imagine.”

May said he almost used Instagram when he felt worse to tell followers how “pathetic” he looked and felt, but he was worried it would “scare people”. He told fans that for a while he “could not get out of bed” and was “filled” with flu symptoms.

At the end of the video, May turned his attention directly to the unvaccinated and said, “There are so many people in hospitals now that have not been struck by needles, who are exactly on the line between life and death.” He added that he does not think he would have recovered so well if he had not had three strokes.

“I beg and beg you to go and get hit,” the musician told fans.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday that the UK is experiencing “cases of Omicron surgeries across the country”, with “hospitalizations growing quite large in London”.

The UK reported the second highest number of daily Covid-19 cases since the pandemic began on Monday, at 91,743.
