A 43-year-old California man shared a photo on social media last week of the havoc the coronavirus wreaked on his body during a nearly two-month stay in the hospital.

“I wanted to show it can happen to anyone,” Mike Schultz told BuzzFeed News after posting his before-and-after Instagram post that showed him 50 pounds lighter than a month before he was hospitalized. “It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, have preexisting conditions or not. It can affect you.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Schultz is a nurse from San Francisco with no underlying conditions who used to work out nearly every day, but after six weeks in a Boston hospital with the virus, he said he’d gone from 190 pounds to 140.

Schultz and his boyfriend, from Boston, had gone to Miami Beach in March for a festival where 38 attendees later tested positive for coronavirus and three people died.

Within days of arriving back in Boston, Schultz came down with the virus and spent nearly two months in the hospital fighting for his life.

In an Instagram post sharing the before and after photos, he wrote, “I wanted to show everyone how badly being sedated for 6 weeks on a ventilator or intubated can be. Amongst other things, covid19 reduced my lung capacity with pneumonia. Over 8 weeks I’ve been away from family and friends Getting stronger everyday and working to increase my lung capacity. I’ll get back to where I was in healthier ways this time….maybe even do cardio 😱. #covid19 #caronavirus #recovery #godblessmynurses.”
