Here’s an excerpt from the New York Post report:
Monica Almeida, 37, a fully vaccinated nurse in the UK, spent 28 days in a coma after contracting COVID-19 and was just 72 hours from having her ventilator turned off when she was saved by a “large dose of Viagra,” the Lincolnite reported.
Almeida, an asthma sufferer who has worked as a respiratory specialist for the UK’s National Health Service in Lincolnshire, tested positive for the deadly bug on Oct. 31, 2021, according to the outlet.
Four days later, the mother of two lost her sense of taste and smell, then began coughing up blood and soon experienced a drop in oxygen levels, according to the news outlet.
After being discharged from a hospital in Greater Lincolnshire with a prescription but no treatment, her condition took a turn for the worse and she was taken to Lincoln County Hospital, where she had started her career.
Monica Almeida was fighting for her life against COVID-19 in a medically induced coma when she was cured of the virus by taking Viagra.

The critically ill nurse was rushed to the resuscitation room, where she received oxygen before being admitted to the ICU on Nov. 9. A week later, she was placed in a medically induced coma, according to the Lincolnite.
But before going under, Almeida signed a document saying she was willing to take part in a study to try experimental drugs.
She was given the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra about a week after being placed in a coma and her airways opened, the outlet said.
“It was definitely the Viagra that saved me. Within 48 hours it opened up my airwaves and my lungs started to respond,” Almeida told the Sun. “If you think how the drug works, it expands your blood vessels. I have asthma and my air sacs needed a little help.”
On Christmas Eve, the nurse was finally discharged and was able to spend the holidays with her family — though her complete recovery could take several more months, the Lincolnite reported.

Forbes also reported the medical miracle:
This may get you to stand up and take notice. A nurse in the U.K. reportedly credits Viagra for saving her from severe, life-threatening Covid-19. Yes, that Viagra, the one typically used for erectile dysfunction. Such news has already helped the word “Viagra” trend on Twitter with tweets such as the following from Robert M. Wachter, MD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF):
Indeed, Dr. Wachter, anything is possible. But is there any hard evidence that Viagra, otherwise known as sildenafil, can serve as a treatment for severe Covid-19?
Wachter’s tweet included an article from The New York Post by Yaron Steinbuch. Steinbuch relayed the story of Monica Almeida, a 37 year old nurse who tested positive for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in October. Almeida’s condition deteriorated to the point that she was admitted to a hospital ICU and placed in medically-induced coma on November 16. When things looked bleak, her doctors then reportedly tried the little blue pill. Sometime thereafter, Almeida, who was apparently fully vaccinated prior to the infection, emerged from her coma on December 14 and returned home on Christmas eve.
