First Dates Manchester singleton claims refusing ventilator saved his life amid scary Covid battle

First Dates Manchester singleton Steve revealed a doctor told him not going on a ventilator during his battle with coronavirus saved his life.

The 36-year-old casino manager, who was set up on a date with a man he’d previously slept with, explained how he was taken to hospital with the virus last year.

‘In March 2020, I did contract Covid-19,’ Steve told the cameras.

‘The night I went in it made me think, am I going to die never experiencing a proper relationship that’s lasted longer than a couple of months?’

Opening up about his battle, Steve disclosed to his date Alan: ‘It was hard, but I’m one of these… I need to fight this and that’s what I did.’

Steve’s condition was so bad that doctors wanted to place him on a ventilator to help with his breathing, but he refused.

‘They said you’re going on a ventilator and I said no,’ he recalled. ‘I got to halfway through and I started recovering by doing the proning and the doctor came to see me on my way out and he said, “It’s a good job you didn’t because you wouldn’t have made it.

‘”You’ve made the right decision, it’s saved your life”.’

Proning is when a patient is put in the prone position which is flat on their belly with their chest and face down, rather than on their back

Of the whole experience, Steve confessed: ‘It does make you reevaluate your life and want to change a few things and obviously, my love life is one on that checklist.’

First Dates Manchester continues on Tuesday at 10pm on Channel 4.
