Florida man issues mask plea from hospital bed while seriously ill with COVID-19

A Florida man who believed COVID-19 was “political” and akin to having the flu has pleaded with people to wear a mask.

A video showing Chuck Stacey, 50, struggling to speak through laboured breathing as he lays in a hospital bed has been posted to Twitter by a friend of his.

“I didn’t wear a mask,” Stacey said, as seen in the video above.

“I should’ve.”

“You don’t want to end up like me.

“I’m having trouble breathing.

“I have to be intubated if I get any worse.

“It’s so hard to breath.”

In May, Stacey reportedly took to social media to criticise people who wore masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic as overreacting.

He also claimed he should be excused from wearing a mask because he suffers from claustrophobia, the New York Post reports.

But he has now conceded his position was wrong.
