A 39 year old mother who is the face of the coronavirus epidemic with a gripping video of her symptoms has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home.
Fit and healthy Tara Jane Langston became famous worldwide when she described that she struggled to breathe while warning of the dangers of the deadly virus.
Now MailOnline can reveal that the mother of two has returned home and can give her two daughters a hug.
“It was the best Mother’s Day gift ever,” said Tara.
A 39-year-old mother who became the face of the coronavirus epidemic with a harrowing video of her symptoms has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home
“I’m just so happy to be home to see my girls and husband. And to know that I beat the corona virus.
“I’m still on the road to recovery, but I feel so much better than when I made the video. It has been a traumatic time, but I have passed the worst. ‘
Before she was released from Hilingdon Hospital, Tara Jane sent a cheerful video message to her daughters Meadow, three, and Annabelle, 17.
She said, “I can breathe. I am so happy. Mom will be home soon for my husband and two daughters. ‘
Jane was picked up from the hospital on Sunday morning by her husband Richard and had an emotional reunion with her daughters at their West London home
She added boldly, “Make sure you clean up that house. I love you and miss you and can’t wait to be with you. ‘
Jane was picked up from the hospital on Sunday morning by her husband Richard and had an emotional reunion with her daughters at their West London home.
Her family was isolated to herself after Jane tested positive for the virus rushed to the hospital for breath.
A video she shot shortly after her capture has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times and seen around the world.
It triggered a wake-up call for many who thought that only the elderly and those with underlying health problems were at risk for Covid-19.
In the video, Jane begged others to take the deadly virus seriously and was one of the youngest victims in Britain to be made public.
She gasped and coughed, made the harrowing video while in the ICU ward and sent it to her colleagues as a WhatsApp message to warn them to be careful.
She described trying to breathe as “having glass in her lungs”
The short video has been posted on social media and has gone viral and has been viewed in the US, India and Europe.
She said, “I wouldn’t wish to have experienced my worst enemy, but if there’s a good thing, I hope it opened people’s eyes to the dangers of this virus.
39-year-old Tara Jane Langston, who is now recovering, filmed herself with her phone in the intensive care unit at Hillingdon Hospital in West London. She said every breath is a “struggle.”
“Until I got sick, I took it with a pinch of salt. I was very healthy and didn’t think I would be at risk. And then it hit me. Knowing that some people will pay attention and take better care of it, the video is worth it.
“I’m so happy to be home and it means there’s a bed available for someone else.
Jane said she is still coughing and struggling to climb to the cans, but knows she will be fit and healthy soon.
The important thing is that I beat the corona virus. The past two weeks have been surreal, almost like being in a Hollywood movie. The hospital and treatment were fantastic and I cannot thank them enough.
“I never expected the video to see so many people, but when it comes home how dangerous the virus is, I’ll be happy.”

Her husband Richard said the video could be a lifesaver.
“I got a call from family members in America who had no idea about Tara Jane and then they saw the video and said they planned to meet, but would cancel now. I think it was a wake-up call that they could catch the virus. Nobody is immune. ‘
While Jane was isolated, husband Richard and their daughters were unable to visit their mother, but spoke by phone.
Jane said she had no underlying health issues and considered herself fit and healthy. A former smoker, who quit more than 20 years ago, did not see himself fit into the profile of those hospitalized.
Jane again urged people to quit smoking as the disease continues to spread and kill.
“You have to give yourself the best chance,” she said.
