Healthy 32-year-old survives coronavirus after 93 days in hospital

Michael Orantes had a single request for doctors before they put him on a ventilator: “Please make sure I wake up,” the Inglewood resident said. “I have a two-year-old daughter.” Doctors took his command seriously — and, in the end, fulfilled it. But it took quite a while. Orantes was admitted to Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood on March 25, among the first four or five patients with the coronavirus that the facility saw. Since that time, doctors at Centinela Hospital have cared fo...

It took a bit of time to build and develop the non-profit dedicated to the study and preservation of local historic homes, but this past June FORT officially launched online with the f...
