“We were finally able to heal the identified broncho-pleural fistulas. In the last 48 hours, we also observed the normalization of coagulation with the treatment instituted and we no longer detected signs of hemorrhage”, revealed the medical bulletin.
“The clinical situation of the patient, although still critical, gives the professional team more confidence in his recovery. We are aware that we still have a way to go.” Professionals who are taking care of the actor also reported that he continues to breathe with the help of mechanical ventilation and ECMO (Membrane Extracorporeal Oxygenation, the “artificial lung”).
“The patient remains on mechanical ventilation and ECMO. The actor’s family is very grateful for all the affection and prayers and asks that they continue to send good energy for the recovery of all those who are fighting the virus”, concluded the statement.
Admitted since March 13, the actor has had several pulmonary complications, which required different invasive procedures.
