Briton Joseph Flavill had an accident in March last year, he was hit by a car. After a traumatic brain injury, he fell into a coma. After 10 months, the guy came to his senses, but he was alone in the ward, and none of the relatives came.
The boy's mother and aunt told The Guardian that Joseph contracted the coronavirus twice while recovering from the accident, and recovered both times. Joseph's mother was able to visit her son on his 19th birthday in December, but she had to equip herself with PPE and stay at a distance, so the woman does not even know if her son understood who came to him.
They tried to explain to Joseph by video link the scale of the pandemic and the requirements for restrictive measures, but it is not known whether he understood this information. The teenager was transferred to another clinic for rehabilitation. He is able to touch his left and right ears, move both legs and answer yes and no by blinking, and also smile a little.
In January, it became known that an Australian student woke up after seven months of coma and was immediately charged with murder. Last June, a young man fell from the balcony of his fourth-floor apartment. The day after his fall, law enforcement officers found the body of a 19-year-old girl in his apartment.
