A man believed to be one of the first people to contract coronavirus has died after months of “hardship,” his heartbroken mother has shown.

A 26-year-old British student Connor Reed was teaching English at a college in Wuhan, China when he contracted COVID-19 in November last year.

He shrugged off the symptoms as the flu first and was bedridden in his apartment.

He was later admitted to the hospital after developing a severe cough and losing his voice.

He continued to recover, but Connor was found dead last week in his dorm at Bangor University in Wales. The sun Reports.

Police and paramedics were called to his home last weekend, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Months of Hardship”

“In the past six months, he has experienced great difficulties in China, contracted COVID and banned it under strict conditions for over 20 weeks,” she told the publication.

“He’s endured more lockdowns than anyone we’ve ever known – 16 weeks of hard lockdown in Wuhan, two weeks in Australia, and another three weeks in the UK.”

Connor’s symptoms first began on November 25th last year, just days after the suspected first case was recorded in a 55-year-old person from Hubei Province on November 17th.

Connor described his coronavirus symptoms earlier this year and said he developed a cough that turned into some type of pneumonia.

“I ended up in the hospital breathing like I was breathing into a paper bag,” he said The sun in February.

The avid student, whose parents Hayley and Rod moved to Australia about a decade ago, said he was sick for about two weeks before fully recovering.

“I didn’t want to take antibiotics and only drank hot toddlers made of hot whiskey and honey, and that really helped my sore throat,” he said.

“I am proof that you can survive the coronavirus.”

After incarceration in Wuhan for 76 days and battling the virus, he traveled to Brisbane to visit his family and celebrated his birthday during his visit.

“Happy birthday Connor Reed, it’s so great to have you here for your birthday,” wrote his mother Hayley on on July 20th.

Three months later she announced his tragic death and wrote that Connor had “died in a tragic accident”.

“He had such a wonderful smile, enthusiasm and love for life,” she wrote on October 27th.

“We are blessed to have you in our lives, if only for a very short time.”

Local police said the incident was not being considered suspicious, but an investigation was opened to investigate his death.

Since Hayley and her family will not be able to get to the UK – parts of it will be banned for four weeks on November 5th due to a surge in virus cases in England – they are hosting one here too – and they have started a fundraiser, to give him “the funeral he deserves”.

“To say Connor had a sense of adventure was an understatement,” Hayley told the publication.

“When he told us he was going to learn Chinese, we didn’t really believe him, but he knelt and went to China by himself and was fluent in Mandarin in a few years.

“We will never know where his ambition and drive would have taken him.”
