Torontonian Richard Reid traveled to Florida in early March and, upon his return to Canada, tested positive for COVID-19. He quickly became seriously ill and spent time in a Toronto intensive-care unit, where he was intubated for several days. He has since made a full recovery, and recently his wife arranged for him to reunite (at a safe distance, of course) with the healthcare workers from Trillium Health Partners who helped him survive his illness. You can watch the heartwarming video on Instagram below.
