CLINTON, Okla. — For some COVID-19 patients, getting a negative test result is only half the battle. Recovery can be a much longer process.

Trista Sperle from Clinton, Okla. spent nearly a month in the hospital, hooked up to oxygen, after testing positive in late October. Sperle was released mid-November, but her reliance on oxygen has not changed much.

“I’m still on two liters of oxygen for the next three weeks,” Sperle said.

She is still not sure how she became infected.

“I didn’t go to football games. I did go to church,” Sperle said. “I didn't wear a mask at church. I don't think I got it from there, but I don’t know that.”

Sperle does know what coronavirus is capable of and hopes her experience serves as a warning.
