Yudi Dukes has spent nearly half a year in critical condition due to complications from COVID-19. He endured four and a half months on a ventilator and experienced double lung failure, a tracheotomy, septic shocks, and countless other life-threatening conditions throughout his hospitalization.
Yudi who currently lives in the 5 Towns, is believed to be one of the longest-hospitalized coronavirus patients in the US. After 158 days, he finally left the ICU on Friday to begin rehab.
