A 17-year-old girl from Hume has shared her brutal experience of “nearly dying” with Covid-19 in a push to encourage Victorians to get vaccinated as the state recorded its deadliest day of the current outbreak and passed 60% second dose targets.
Saela and her seven family members acquired Covid-19 while she was completing Year 11 last month. At the time, she wasn’t eligible for the vaccine.
