Video: Michelle Barnett’s Covid-19 Journey

April 23, 2021

A video was recently shared by Government detailing Michelle Barnett’s time with Covid-19, highlighting her journey from diagnosis to recovery.

Ms. Barnett was placed in the intensive care unit after being diagnosed in April 2020, with a ventilator in place for 41 days. After the ventilator was removed, recovery began by having her bear her own weight.

Continuing to improve, Ms. Barnett was moved to the hospital’s main medical unit before being discharged from hospital on July 4, 2020.

One year later, Ms. Barnett says, “My family; thank God I get to be with them again.”

    So incredibly glad to know that Michelle recovered and is now able to see and be with her family once again. Michelle was my very first staff person when I returned to the island after completing my pediatrics residency in Toronto. Michelle’s whole persona exuded joy and love. Her smile was (and still is – praise God) infectious! I would like those who question the “reality” of Covid or it’s seriousness, to think about her case. For months she was probably alone in hospital, unable to have family around her. And when she was being intubated to be placed on a ventilator, she and her family would have been wondering whether they were ever going to see each other again. I recognize this is being incredibly blunt, but this is reality. Please Bermuda, think about this case, have compassion for your fellow man, and get vaccinated.
