One of the First Americans with COVID Spent 64 Days Near Death: ‘I’m the Luckiest Person Alive’

Greg Garfield was just skiing on the slopes with his friends. They didn't really think much about the coronavirus because this virus was only in its early stages! Though into the first few days of Garfield's annual skiing trip, everyone in their group had body-aches and fevers. Greg had to spent the next three days in a hotel bed. "I feel like death", Garfield said. But if you have hop, you have everything! “He was my miracle patient,” says Dr. Daniel Dea, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist who led Garfield’s treatment. “Not only did he survive multi-organ failure, but he’s returned to near normal. That’s a miraculous thing.”
