HOUSTON — A detective with the Houston Police Department battling COVID-19 has been moved to another hospital.
Detective Ramon “Ray” Cervantes was discharged Saturday after 45 days at the hospital. He’d been in intensive care fighting the virus since April.
On April 18, Chief Art Acevedo shared Cervantes opened his eyes and was able to follow stimuli and doctor's instructions after he’d spent more than a week in grave condition.
Cervantes is a 57-year-old cold case detective who has been with the department for more than 25 years.
