Not an #AprilFoolsDay Joke: after 17 days at @nyulangone, including 6 days on a ventilator, I’m being discharged! Here’s my final hospital bed selfie. #coronavirus #COVID19 #coronaboy #LatsCovid19Journal pic.twitter.com/RlgDiVg7sU

Lat was at death’s door when they gave him the HC/Z treatment, I believe they started the treatment the day they put him on the ventilator. Not a good sign. HC/Z supposedly works better early in the disease progression plus he has asthma.
If Lat is going home, this is very good news for anyone that gets this bug.
