Not long ago, Allen Washington was a busy executive who travelled the country on business trips while trying to stay healthy and active, walking up to two miles a day for exercise.
But that came to an end when he developed COVID-19 , the disease caused by the new coronavirus , in June. Washington spent three weeks lying in a hospital bed in a medically induced coma. When he woke up, he discovered his body had deteriorated. He had bedsores and was too weak to walk or stand. He had nerve damage in his legs, neck and shoulders. He suffered from memory loss and kidney failure.
