“Finally, there is someone that my husband can see at home. He was all alone, missing the family so much. My husband made tea for me as soon as I came home. He is constantly asking me what I would eat,” she smiled.

Her 23-year-old daughter and 25-year-old son are still in the GMCH, fighting Covid. “I hope my children are discharged from the hospital soon. I wanted to be the last of three of us to be discharged from the hospital. I wanted to enter my home with my children,” she said.

She added, “My children are very brave. My son cheered me when I was leaving the hospital.” During the illness, she suffered bodyaches, tiredness and headache. I didn’t have a cold or cough, but had fever for some time. She said she used to keep all her close contacts at hospital in high spirits.

The survivor added, “I am thankful to the UT Administration and my country for taking a good decision in these tough times. ” The first Covid patient’s brother, a male cook, two male friends are still in hospital.
