A Loudoun County, Virginia, volunteer paramedic is back on the job after recovering from COVID-19.
Lt. Sam Neglia contracted the coronavirus from a patient while on the job in June.
He isolated himself at home until he realized he needed hospital care and was put on a ventilator.
Neglia was sedated for 11 days.
During that time his family made a critical decision to treat him with convalescent plasma.
Neglia believes it saved his life.
Twenty-eight days later he left the hospital and was back at work in July with the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad.
