Doctor recovering from virus after being on ventilator

SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle-area doctor who got the coronavirus and spent more than two weeks on a ventilator is now at home recovering after receiving experimental treatments.  Dr. Ryan Padgett told The Seattle Times he got sick in early March after becoming infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Padgett was one of the first front-line health-care workers in Washington to test positive for COVID-19. Padgett, 45, left in a wheelchair on April 5. Family members awaited him, and he said: “I stood up and gave them all hugs…I’ve cried more in the last weeks than in my whole life.”
