‘It can strike anybody in the prime of their life’

The mother of a 41-year-old woman who is in an induced coma in Fiona Stanley Hospital after falling ill with COVID-19 has pleaded with the WA public to listen to health warnings and follow instructions.

Carlene Brown’s daughter Kiri-Lee Ryder is on life support after contracting COVID-19 on a cruise ship. Ms Brown told Steve and Baz on 6PR Breakfast that her family has been unable to even see her becaue of the health precautions being taken to keep patients and the public safe.

She says she gets angry when she sees people ignoring health advice because the virus doesn’t just impact older people.

“I just want people to take this COVID-19 crisis seriously, people are not sticking to the rules that we all need to stick by,” he said.

“It doesn’t only effect people in their 60’s, 70’s & 80s plus critically – it effects young people grealy as well.

“There are young people like my daughter in intensive care and on life support. You need to take notice of what we’re being asked to do.”
