COVID-19 has been an illness like no other, spreading across nations, sparing none, and claimed so many lives. The following are narratives of two patients who suffered from COVID-19: The first is a consultant nephrologist who developed hypoxia due to COVID-19, required high-flow oxygen therapy, and awake proning but was fortunate to recover from that stage without mechanical ventilation. The second is a biomedical engineer in the Middle East who developed severe COVID-19, was intubated and ventilated, needed a tracheostomy, and then recovered slowly back to health. This invited article includes a narrative of their experiences and personal perspectives.
