Teen Know Nothing About Pandemic After He Recovered for 10-Month Comatose
After being comatose for 10 months, a teen who recently recovered knows nothing about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
A teenager in England woke up without knowing about the ongoing pandemic caused by COVID-19 after being comatose for 10 months. According to the article of The Guardian, March 1, 2020, when 19-year-old Joseph Flavill was run over.
At that time there were only 23 COVID cases recorded in England and 3 weeks later the British government declared a major lockdown in their country while Flavill was still comatose.
Flavill sustained a traumatic brain injury due to the accident and twice tested positive for the virus while confined to the hospital. This month he is able to move his body and his eyes are also wide open.
But it was a test for his family as to how they could gradually explain the change in the world caused by the pandemic. The young man continues to recover in the hospital but his relatives still cannot visit him so they talk in video calls first.
Sally Flavill-Smith, the teen’s aunt, said the recovery is showing progress as Joseph is now able to give a high five to the nurses. Support for the Flavill family has poured in because so far the family has received almost P2.1 million for the young man’s recovery procedure.
Flavill is a cricket and hockey fan who was supposed to receive the Duke of Edinburg Achievement Award in May 2020 but due to an accident, he did not attend the awarding at Buckingham Palace.
