Medical stethoscope a Red heart and treatment.A Lamont man is now on the road to recovery after being diagnosed with COVID-19.According to KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City, Jimmy Blaser thought he would not get COVID-19 and that it was all some sort of joke. At the end of March, two of Blaser’s relatives became ill with COVID-19. That is the time Blaser began to feel sick. Blaser was then sent to St. Mary’s Regional Health Center in Enid where he tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed on a ventilator for 3 weeks. Blaser says the virus can take every drop of strength. He then entered into a critical condition, but then took a turn for the better. Blaser later had his ventilator removed and he had two negative COVID-19 tests.Blaser says that without the hardworking doctors, there is no way he could have bounced back.
