“I wanted to show everyone how badly being sedated for six weeks on a ventilator or incubated can be,” Schultz captioned the photo of his 50lb weight loss. “Amongst other things, Covid-19 reduced my lung capacity with pneumonia.”

Merely taking a picture was difficult, as per Schultz, as he struggled to hold his phone.

“I was so weak. This was one of the most frustrating parts,” he told BuzzFeed. “I couldn’t hold my cellphone; it was so heavy. I couldn’t type, because my hands shook so much.”

According to Schultz, he decided to post the before and after weight loss photo as a warning that everyone may get coronavirus, irrespective of age, or pre-existing health conditions.

How did Mike Schultz Contract Coronavirus?

Schultz said he and his boyfriend Josh Hebblethwaite had visited the Winter Party Festival music festival in Miami Beach, which was organized from March 4-10 before falling ill.

According to Schultz, while he knew coronavirus was “out there,” he said there “were no real restrictions in place” at the festival.

After the week-long event, BuzzFeed records 38 people have been infected with coronavirus and three men have died.

Since moving to Boston to live with Hebblethwaite, Schultz first began getting ill and displaying signs of a cough and trouble breathing a week after the party.

Shortly after being taken to the facility, physicians said that Schultz definitely needed to be intubated, which he claimed “freaked” him out.

Schultz also told BuzzFeed that some of the reactions had been harsh since being discharged from the hospital and upon posting the images of his remarkable weight loss, from people who indicated that he should not have gone to Winter Party in March when most people knew the risk of the spread amid the coronavirus outbreak.

However, a lot of the feedback from more than 32,000 followers of Schultz has been supportive.

“You will rebound fast. I’m sure of it, Mike!!” one person commented, while another said: “Appreciate the warning. You’re the man. Get well soon.”
