Buffalo High School teacher at ICU battles COVID-19

Buffalo High School’s social studies teacher Mike Curry is being treated for COVID-19 in an intensive care unit in River Falls, Wisconsin, according to his family.

According to his sister, Melissa Zuniga, he developed COVID-19 in early November and progressed to COVID pneumonia. Despite an antibody infusion earlier this week, his oxygen level dropped dangerously low and he deteriorated on Wednesday, after which he was transported to an intensive care unit.

“They had to open his airways to help him breathe,” said Zuniga, who noted in social media posts that her brother has not been vaccinated. He could have some food on Thursday, Zuniga said in a Facebook comment.
