Friends are rallying around a UK celebrity agent who is in a coma at a Cancun hospital due to COVID-19.

Terry Mills caught coronavirus presumably in Cancun during a business trip.

Mills, who is 38 and a cancer survivor, has developed pneumonia and is in a coma at Playa Med Hospital in Cancun.

His friends set up a GoFundMe page to help cover his medical bills, which they describe as astronomical, as his insurance only covered the first 24 hours of care. 

The fundraiser reads: “The hospital have told family and friends if Terry was to have any chance of survival he had to be induced into a coma and placed on a ventilator for a minimum of ten days, plus recovery care beyond that, and a flight to bring them home to England.”

GoFundMe campaign organizer Sarah Robertson told The Mirror and says friends and family are “frightened” by the situation. The campaign hopes to raise £100,000, nearly 140,000 USD. Over £40,000 has been raised in three days

Friends, celebrities and supporters have begun using the hashtag #helpterrymills in hopes to help spread the word.

British authorities have for nearly a year advised their citizens against all non-essential travel, especially trips abroad.
