1st COVID-19 double-lung transplant patient goes home
from Live Science
The first COVID-19 patient in the U.S. to receive a double-lung transplant was discharged from the hospital this week, according to news reports. After the coronavirus inflicted irreversible damage to her lungs, 28-year-old Mayra Ramirez underwent the transplant on June 5, Live Science previously reported. To qualify for the procedure, she first had to test negative for the virus, as transplant patients must take immune-suppressing drugs following the surgery.
