A mother has told how her son was fighting for his life and shared harrowing photos of him after she claims GP misdiagnosed deadly Strep A with Covid. 

Chontelle Gosling, 34, Essex, said she was told her 11-year-old son, Sunnie, may have strained a muscle from coughing by her GP and should go home-  but was given emergency care at Colchester Hospital's A&E.

Sunnie first contracted Strep A in July and was receiving life support treatment at the Royal Brompton Hospital, in London for four weeks.

Medics operated on Sunnie to drain the fluid from his lungs and while his condition improved initially, it suddenly deteriorated with suspected sepsis. 

Chontelle Gosling,  34, said she was told to take her poorly son Sunnie (pictured in intensive care) home after he was misdiagnosed Strep A with Covid

The little boy recovered after taking antibiotics and spent a month in intensive care where he was diagnosed with Strep A and returned home July, 16, 2022.

Sunnie was struck down by the virus in the summer of 2022. Chontelle took Sunnie to the GP on June, 15 and 17, 2022 where he was told to go home. 

Sunnie got worse and his mum took him to Colchester Hospital's A&E department on the morning of June, 20, 2022.

He was blue-lighted to the Royal Brompton Hospital, in London, for specialist care, and Chontelle said the seriousness of the situation sank in while she was in the ambulance.
