Former MLB manager Art Howe in ICU due to the coronavirus

Art Howe, who managed the Houston Astros, Oakland Athletics and New York Mets after his major league playing career, is hospitalized in intensive care with the coronavirus, Howe confirmed to Houston TV station KPRC 2 on Thursday.

Howe, 73, told KPRC 2 that he first felt COVID-19 symptoms on May 3 and learned he was positive two days after being tested. After trying to recover at home, he was transported to a hospital by ambulance Tuesday after his symptoms grew worse, and he remained in the ICU on Thursday night.

Howe’s initial symptoms included chills that made him shake “like a leaf,” then he felt “total fatigue” in addition to losing his sense of taste.

“Never experienced anything like it before,” Howe told KPRC 2.

Art Howe, who had been hospitalized w/COVID-19, went home today:

"It was just a long five days or so. I’m finally feeling a little bit better. Still not able to eat real good, taste buds are giving me a hard time. It’s just nice to be back home & hopefully continue to progress."

................

(and finally I can use my line: "Geesh, the guy used to manage the Mets - hasn't he already suffered enough?")
