A New York City healthcare worker who believes she gave her little sister COVID-19 is now begging for help to save her life.

Mia Mungin, 37, says her sister Zoe Mungin, 30, is now fully reliant on a ventilator to breathe at Brooklyn's Brookdale Hospital after testing positive for COVID-19. She was rushed to the emergency last Friday after earlier being sent home to recover by herself.

“They intubated her in the ambulance,” Mia said. “They told us she was intubated and the sickest in the hospital and that we need be prayerful.” As of 1 a.m. Wednesday she was told her sister can no longer breathe on her own at all, she said.
