This came through on my Facebook today. The chap in question is relatively local. A Filipino Space Engineer of 47 years of age. I’m Angela and this is my dear friend, Rhoel Ribaya. At the age of 47, he contracted corona virus. He battled the disease for 2 months in ITU and his success story as the last Covid-19 patient to be discharged from Blackpool victoria’s intensive care unit was featured in BBC news marking the end of the pandemic’s 1st wave. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-53582768 He survived months of being intubated without friends or family by his side. But the war was far from over. Despite being declared Covid-free, he suffered the long term effects of the virus. His life never went back to normal. Breathing became difficult. There many late nights of being rushed back to the hospital. On October 13, 2020, he suffered a cardiac arrest in his home. He was comatose for 2 days until he finally passed away on October 15, 2020.
