Thomas Salts spent two weeks in a hotel in Arizona sleeping, watching TV and, most importantly, fighting COVID-19.
“I mean it was truly one of the worst bouts I’d ever had dealing with any kind of thing, with the flu or anything,” Salts told NPR’s Weekend Edition. “It was 10 times worse.”
Circle the City, a Phoenix-based nonprofit, is helping Salts and other people without homes gain access to health care. Since May, the group has been housing and treating people with COVID-19 symptoms in the Phoenix Inn hotel in downtown Phoenix.
