Chou is reported to have trouble breathing and lying down normally as he’s way too fat, and as a result, couldn’t sleep properly for two days straight. Chou had to call for emergency on June 1 night as he could no longer stand the sleeplessness.
When the ambulance arrived, the medical staff were unable to transfer the “giant” young man to the hospital and had to call a fire brigade for a helping hand. Another four medical staff also struggled to transfer Chou from the emergency room to the intensive care unit the night after.
At the hospital, Chou is measured 278kg, up from 150kg last year before the advent of coronavirus.
“Chou suffers from a range of serious diseases due to the heavy weight, including heart failure and respiratory dysfunction, systemic edema,” a doctor at Wuhan Central University Hospital told News Week, adding that genetic factors and an unhealthy lifestyle have taken a heavy toll on his condition.
