He called COVID-19 “the hardest thing I have ever faced in my life,” and State Rep. Chris Latvala’s battle is still not over.
The Republican lawmaker has represented the 67th Florida House District, including Clearwater and Largo in northern Pinellas County, since 2014.
He posted about his ongoing fight Friday night on Facebook and said he’s being treated at Largo Medical Center.
“My trust is in the Great Physician above and the medical experts who will carry out His plan. I am also reminded of the thousands of lives lost by this disease and those family still suffering. Millions of people around the world are have worse cases than I,” Rep. Latvala wrote.
“Countless doctors and nurses died giving care to their patients. By any and all those measures I am an extremely blessed man.”
Rep. Latvala announced earlier this week he had tested positive for COVID-19.
