Not last year, this is now. I suspect this case to be on ECMO.

A PREGNANT woman is fighting for her life in hospital after contracting swine flu.
Mother-of-four Fallon Devaney, 25, was rushed to the Queen's Medical Centre struggling for breath.
She had been suffering flu symptoms for more than a week and the hospital confirmed she had swine flu.
Miss Devaney, who is five months pregnant with her fifth child, was in intensive care.
Fearney said: "She's near to death and it's touch and go. We do not know if she's going to survive."Friends have set up a Facebook group called 'Get well soon Fallon' as a show of support to her and her family.
Ms Fearney said her daughter recently moved from Beeston to Kirk Hallam, near Ilkeston.
She said Fallon hadn't been vaccinated against swine flu.
"Everyone in the family has gone and had the vaccination since Fallon was taken ill," she said.
