FDNY EMS paramedic Christell Cadet ? who shared her coronavirus struggle with the world last week from her hospital bed ? is now unable to breathe comfortably on her own and has been hooked up to a ventilator, her distraught family told the Daily News Tuesday.
Cadet, 34, is sedated and has a breathing tube down her throat, but hasnâ??t given up the fight, her family and friends said.
On Friday, Cadet was well enough to speak to CNN from her Long Island hospital, where she was admitted last week.
But over the weekend, her condition took a dramatic turn for the worse, said her family and friends, who are unable to visit her due to the highly-contagious nature of the virus.
