Doctors have studied the brain of Omar Taylor, a 31-year old-man from Essex, who has made a miraculous recovery from coronavirus, which caused him to also suffer from sepsis, pneumonia, heart failure and a double stroke.

The father of two spent six weeks in Colchester General fighting the illness, during which time his wife, Kaitlyn, was told to prepare for the worst. Omar was initially rushed to hospital with breathing difficulties, and was subsequently placed in intensive care on a ventilator for 20 days.
