Adrian was allowed to go home
Just a few days ago, Adrian James, a two-year-old toddler from Illinois, had to be artificially ventilated in the hospital. The two-year-old was infected with the Delta variant of Covid-19. Now there is the all-clear: His mom could now bring Adrian home.
Adrian’s mother: “So, so, so happy”
“So, so, so happy,” wrote Tiffany Jackson in a text message to Sharon Bernstein from Reuters. There were even photos attached of Adrian, who had recovered, sitting in bed and eating french fries. Just a few days ago, this picture was unthinkable, because Adrian had to be artificially ventilated and fed in the meantime.
Adrian was infected with the Delta variant
Adrian had to be flown to the “Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital” in St. Louis on October 1st and showed severe symptoms of a Covid-19 infection. He was infected with the dangerous Delta variant that is currently spreading in the state of Illinois. Since the vaccines are only approved for children aged 12 and over in the USA, Adrian was exposed to the disease without any protection. Children like Adrian can only be protected from the disease if vaccination protection is implemented across the board. For this reason, his mother Tiffany once again appeals to those who can be vaccinated to get vaccinated.

In November, two-year-old Adrian now has birthdays – and after his recovery there is even more reason to celebrate.
