COVID-19: Lady wakes up after 28 days in coma

A paramedic has woken up after spending 28 days in a coma that was reportedly caused by coronavirus.

Christell Cadet, a 34-year-old New York Fire Department paramedic, awoke this week from the month-long coma, according to the EMS union representing her.

She is believed to have contracted Covid-19 while battling the outbreak in the country’s coronavirus epicenter, New York, which has seen more than 25,000 people die from the outbreak and at least 330,000 test positive for the virus.

‘She spent 28 days on life support and she is OFF LIFE SUPPORT and breathing on her own,’ fellow FDNY paramedic Sherry Singleton wrote on a GoFundMe page to help pay for Cadet’s medical expenses.

Singleton went on to say that Cadet is ‘awake, talking and recovering at home.’

‘Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and your generosity. Her rehabilitation and journey to 100% recovery begins,’ Singleton continued to say on the page, which has so far raised $18,600 of its $100,000 goal.
