Man who survived a week on a ventilator tells his coronavirus story


Lawyer and legal commentator David Lat was hospitalized for 17 days with coronavirus, including a week on a ventilator, and chronicled his experience on social media. Joining TODAY from his home along with his husband, Zach Shemtob, he says that he’s still hoarse from his time on the ventilator, but “I’m glad to be on the road to recovery.” He explains that exercise-induced asthma aggravated his condition. Shemtob says it was “a terrifying ordeal.”
