A Bronx COVID-19 survivor has been fighting to fully recover for nearly two years.
Nick Bauso was hospitalized March 16, 2020 with COVID-19. 
He was immediately placed on a ventilator and into a medically induced coma. 
Some doctors worried he would never come off the ventilator, but Bauso proved them wrong.
Bauso, who has been recovering at the Freidwald Center in New City, began breathing on his own this past August – 17 months later.  
He is now in physical therapy, hoping to regain use of his body after the coronavirus left him nearly paralyzed. 
His insurance coverage has run out. There is a GoFundMe to help the 55-year-old cover medical expenses.
