** Welsh Ambulance Service paramedic recovers from COVID-19 after three months in hospital


** A Welsh Ambulance Service medic, who became ill with COVID-19 three months ago, finally left the hospital Thursday after overcoming sepsis and organ failure. That is the word from ITV (August 3) which said Ebbw Vale resident Steve Bell, 59,  was admitted to Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny in March. He spent 92 days there, 78 of which were in intensive care. According to the news site, Bell apparently became ill after a February holiday abroad, seeking hospital help twelve days after returning home. Formerly with the British Army’s Queen’s Lancashire Regiment, he began working for the Welsh Ambulance Service in 2001. By the time he contracted the virus, he was with the non-emergency patient transport service.
