Thirty-two year-old Christopher Yuen received a clap out at Holy Name Medical Center last week. He rebounded from COVID-19 after nearly three weeks on a ventilator and getting experimental treatments of the arthritis drug Kevzara and the antiviral drug Remdesivir.
The doctor’s fever spiked above 103 degrees. His dry cough was getting worse. And the fatigue was advancing. Dr. Joseph Manno was deteriorating with each passing day. "I was getting progressively weaker," he said. Manno, a vascular surgeon at Holy Name Medical Center, was home self-quarantining, trying to beat a case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
