PLAINVILLE — A local call firefighter battling COVID-19 has been moved out of intensive care at a Boston hospital and “is on the road to recovery,” according to his family.

Brett Bertram, 23, of North Attleboro, is at Brigham & Women’s Hospital where he is now able to talk, his mother, Stacy Bertram, posted Wednesday online.

Her son has been at the hospital for over two weeks and was in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator at one point.

In addition to being a call firefighter, Brett Bertram is an emergency medical technician for a private ambulance company.

A GoFundMe page set up to help his family pay medical expenses has raised over $20,000.

“Thank you all for the prayers love and support for not only my son but my entire family during this difficult time,” Stacy Bertram said.
