COVID patient didn't recognize body after double transplant
Published on July 30, 2020 at 02:49PM by
CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago woman who last month became the nation's first COVID-19 patient to undergo a double lung transplant said Thursday that she woke up days later, unaware about the surgery and unable to "recognize my body.”Mayra Ramirez said that before she fell ill she was an independent, active person who moved from North Carolina to Chicago in 2014 to work as a paralegal.
