How a Covid 19 sufferer from Bettlach fights his way back to life in a rehabilitation clinic

In the rehabilitation clinic in Heiligenschwendi, patients from the canton of Solothurn are also recovering from their Covid-19 disease. A visit to the clinic above Lake Thun shows how, among other things, a patient from Bettlach is fighting his way back to life.
