(WIVB) – The president of St. Bonaventure University continues to battle the effects of COVID-19.
Dr. Dennis DePerro has been hospitalized in Syracuse since Dec. 29.
He tested positive on Christmas Eve.
St. Bonaventure says Dr. DePerro is in “serious but stable” condition and is on a ventilator.
The university says Provost Dr. Joseph Zimmer is taking over as acting president so Dr. DePerro can focus completely on his health.
