  3. A true success story for one COVID-19 long hauler. According to WKYC.com 75-year-old Dr. Ken DeLuca contracted the disease in December of 2020 and spent 44 days on a ventilator. He was a psychologist who had been telling his patients for years, “Learn from the past, but look forward to the future and keep going.” Now the doctor is following his own advice, keeping up with his physical therapy, staying positive and spending time with loved ones. After 90 long days of not being home and fighting COVID-19, DeLuca is happy to be on the other side of his treatment, home and happy. (WKYC.com)
