One who survived the disease was firefighter Kent Östling from Luleå. He was called “sickest in Sweden” by the care staff who cared for him for covid-19.
One Saturday night at the end of March, he became tired and lethargic. The next day he woke up with a fever. Kent was bedridden for nine days before finally receiving care when he could no longer eat or drink.
Kent Östling was on a respirator for over two months, and in total he was in hospital for almost three months. Now he is struggling with rehabilitation.
