The man whom doctors consider the first patient infected with the new coronavirus in Italy was discharged from the hospital, after being in serious condition for a month: “one of the simplest and most beautiful things is to breathe on your own.”
The 38-year-old man, identified only by the name Mattia, spent 18 days in Intensive Care, connected to devices that helped him breathe.
When he left the hospital, the authorities recorded audio, saying, “You can cure yourself of this disease,” according to Mediafax..
Mattia said that one of the “simplest and most beautiful things” is “to breathe on your own”, which he did after he no longer needed the help of the devices to breathe.
The man, who lives in a small town in the Lombardy region, lost his father because of the new coronavirus.
His pregnant wife cured Covid-19.
