LB)--In some good news…Doctors say a 16-year-old Blackwell football player is making a miraculous recovery from COVID-19, double pneumonia and strep after being in the ICU on a ventilator. Levi Barnett, a football player in Blackwell who has high functioning autism, was in the ICU, placed on a full ventilator for COVID-19 and other illnesses. KFOR reports it was nearly a month ago when Levi was rushed to the hospital with severe headaches, a high fever and unable to breathe. That’s when he was diagnosed with COVID-19, double pneumonia and strep throat. Although he is expected to recover, doctors say Levi will be a “COVID-19 long-hauler” with lasting side effects from the virus. He is currently going through some physical therapy, with his goal on going home soon.
