Michael Flor struggled with COVID-19 for a record 62 days at the Swedish Clinic in Issaquah, near Seattle.

In the U.S., 70-year-old Michael Flor received a $1.12 million bill for his treatment with Coronavirus COVID-19. This was reported the day before by The Seattle Times.

Flor fought the disease for a record 62 days at Swedish Clinic in Issaquah, near Seattle. His condition was so critical that a night shift nurse held a phone receiver in his ear so that the man could say goodbye to his family. The man's heart, lungs, and kidneys were failing, but he managed to survive.

Now Michael Flor has a bill that looks more like a book because it is 181 pages long and includes almost 3000 items.

It is stated that during the treatment the ward in the intensive care unit cost Michael Flor $9,736 a day, and the artificial lung ventilation machine, which the older man needed for 29 days, cost another $2,835 for every day. Another $300,000 cost of medicine. The total cost of treatment was $1,122,501.04.

At the same time, it is stated that Michael Flor participates in the Medicare health insurance program for elderly people, so he will not have to pay a significant part of the total amount.
