Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill was hospitalized last month with COVID-19. Bidwill spoke with Horizonte’s Jose Cardenas about his experience and how the Cardinals plan to address coronavirus concerns with players and staff.
Bidwell got his first COVID-19 symptom during a trip out east. Advised by medical staff he later got tested but turned out negative. According to Bidwell, his symptoms continued from there and only got worse. At that moment Bidwell knew it was time to check himself into a hospital.
Upon a cat scan, doctors found prominent COVID evidence in both of his lungs. For five days Bidwell stayed in ICU to later being cleared to leave, as the symptoms faded away.
Now about a month later Bidwell says he feels a lot better only showing a slight cough.
Furthermore, the Cardinals organization is taking NFL protocols seriously testing players and staff daily for the virus. Bidwell recommends everyone take the virus seriously.
