COVID-19 destroys a Tennessee man's lungs, undergoes double-lung transplant
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Vanderbilt University Medical Center has shared a remarkable COVID-19 survival story.
Thirty-seven-year-old Zach Lloyd contracted the virus last fall.
The East Tennessee man’s condition became so severe he was eventually placed on, not one but two, heart-lung bypass machines. His lungs were irreparably damaged by the virus.
He was place on the lung transplant list Christmas Eve. He underwent a double lung transplant at the end of January.
In total, Lloyd spent four months at Vanderbilt.
