Woman with Long Covid-19 Suffers 'Chernobyl-like burns'

Nic Kimberley, 53, said that she was left with horrifying inflammation to her hands and feet, noting that her body has swollen up so much she can no longer fit in her jeans.

Kimberley reported her symptoms to her doctor, who said he was familiar was such cases.

Kimberley first spotted that her feet were a "boiling red" color when she went for a shower, noting that she has recently started suffering from a “pressure pain” across her whole body.


“It's like radiation burns. I've never had radiation burns but I've seen photos and watched Chernobyl,” she told the Daily Mirror.

"I'm also feeling a horrific burning sensation, the pain is like a tourniquet. I feel like my body is exploding from the inside," she added.

The 53-year-old experienced a "little bit" of Covid toe; however, she revealed that this way worse, as she is now racked with pain and her fingers and toes feel freezing cold and tingly.
