British Teen Wakes Up From 11-Month Coma

(International Business Times) – A teenager who has been in a comatose since early 2020 is now recovering. Now, his family is wondering how to explain the pandemic to him.

It was March 1, 2020, when 19-year-old Joseph Flavill, known as Joe, was hit by a car and got a traumatic brain injury that left him in a coma, Staffordshire Live reported. For almost 11 months, Joe would remain in a coma at the hospital where the only one who could visit him was his mother because of the COVID-19 restrictions.

Now that Flavill has emerged from a stage 2 coma and is easing into a minimally conscious state, there is now the question of how his loved ones will inform him of what has been going on in the world, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic. CONTINUE
