JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Jacksonville man who survived COVID-19 and other complications said he wishes he had been more careful.
Mike Brandt, 47, said he spent three weeks at Baptist Health hospitals, and at times, he wasn’t sure if he would survive.
“The moment that I started having chest pains and they had to call life flight to the moment I left I was worried I would not make it,” Brandt said.
Brandt said he suffered a heart attack while in the hospital and had two stents put into safe his life.
Brandt said he was exposed to the coronavirus after trivia night with friends at a local business on June 11.
He said six of his 12 friends tested positive for COVID-19 within a week.
