    Washington: A high school teacher from the US state of Colorado was shocked to receive a medical bill of $840,000 (Dh3 million) for his treatment for COVID-19, local media reported.

    The bill received by Robert Dennis, a Centennial High School teacher, covered Dennis' time at Denver's Sky Ridge hospital, where he was put on a ventilator in the intensive care unit for two weeks, reports Xinhua news agency.

    However, what was not included was Dennis' three weeks at Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, or his wife's trips to the emergency room when she was also fighting the virus.

    The couple estimated that their total bills would top $1.5 million.
