'Jesus is my healer' UK pastor infected with coronavirus released from hospital

by Tola Mbakwe


A pastor in Northern Ireland who was left struggling to breathe because of coronavirus has recovered and has been released from hospital. 

Mark McClurg, from Co Down shared the news on Twitter, and thanked everyone for their prayers, as well at the staff Ulster Hospital for saving his life. 
The pastor of an Elim Pentecostal Church said he's looking forward to enjoying life and that Jesus is his healer.

McClurg has been in an intensive care unit  and shared videos from his hospital bed warning the public about how dangerous coronavirus is. 


"Don't think this won't touch you. Don't think for a moment that this is just a cough and a cold you will get," he said. 

"If you get coronavirus and you have to go into the intensive care unit, that means you are going to struggle to breathe, you could go on a ventilator, so please listen to all the advice of the Government."

The Prime Minister has announced 20,000 former healthcare workers are returning to hospitals across the country to help deal with the coronavirus outbreak. 

On Sunday, Boris Johnson thanked them for returning to the frontline as he said the country's response has proved "there really is such a thing as society".
