An 11-month-old girl with COVID-19 is stable and no longer intubated one day after she was airlifted to a Texas hospital 150 miles away because of a shortage of pediatric beds in the Houston area.
The baby has made “an amazing recovery,” said Dr. Dominic Lucia, a pediatric emergency physician, and chief medical officer at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center — Temple, where the child was transported on Thursday.
“She’s no longer requiring the breathing machine. She’s actually off that right now… and she’s actually resting with mom. She’s looking great.”
