BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioners received an update on the COVID-19 Pandemic yesterday. Doctor Richard Fawcett says lung damage and disease, including clotting, is a common complication for people with the virus. He says early on 80-per cent of patients who died, particularly in China and other countries, were on ventilators. Fawcett says however, a study this summer shows those who died in the United States on ventilators dropped to about 36-per cent. He also told the commissioners, dealing with COVID-19 will be as difficult and complicated as dealing with the H-I-V virus.
