POLK COUNTY, FL. – A Polk County Sheriff Deputy is battling COVID-19 and has been placed on a ventilator.
Polk County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Sheriff Chris Broadhead is a 32-year-old father of five, married to his wife Elisa, who was also a Deputy in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Chris is the sole provider in his household, often picking up additional shifts to make ends meet.
Chris is currently battling Covid-19 after the family contracted the virus at the end of July. Chris’s 1-year-old daughter spent 4 days in and out of the hospital and in early August, Chris was admitted and put on a ventilator.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help Chris and his family during this difficult time.
“As the family concentrates on Chris’s survival and health, they need help. This is going to be a long and difficult fight, and any support, prayer, assistance, words of encouragement will be so greatly appreciated. Elisa and Chris are fighters and they are a family of fighters. Help us join their fight by taking care of some of the expenses,” said the GoFundMe organizer.

Yesterday I watched a video of a woman who gave details on the protocols hospitals are following. They do not give IV drips or ivermection or hydroxychloroquine, and almost immediately go to a ventilator. Why are they not using the proven methods first before they go to a mechanical device? I wish I could find that video for you, it was a very good one . . .
Why don’t you go to Med school and then come back with an answer. They’re running out of Vents, it’s not a first-line treatment. Stop getting your info from social media and YouTube videos. You clearly have no idea what you’re talking about.
