The teacher, who had no previous medical problems, reportedly had to be taken to the ICU after getting COVID-19 from a student.

Pirzada also shared photos of his colleague's cases, which showed similar lung deterioration due to variants.

"The game has clearly changed, these variants affect younger people harder and faster," the doctor told Narcity. "These are the most severe cases we see, but we are seeing lots of younger people who are still quite ill who manage to go home and recover there."
