COVID-19 PATIENT WALKS OUT OF HOSPITAL AFTER NEARLY THREE MONTHS IN ICU; FAMILY REJOICES TO WELCOME MCCOY HOME
Another COVID-19 survivor, Aldo McCoy, has been discharged from the Mount St. John Medical Centre (MSJMC) after being warded at the institution for almost three months.
McCoy was severely afflicted by the disease and spent 84 days at the hospitality – much of that time on life support. He was released from the hospital yesterday, May 4, to happy family and friends and an outpouring of love and support.
McCoy was admitted to Mount St. John in February this year after testing positive for the coronavirus.
However, while being treated, his condition deteriorated considerably, requiring the man to need ventilator support throughout his ordeal.
The 50-year-old national is the third person to have survived on a ventilator after being infected with the often-deadly virus.
McCoy now needs a walker to help him get around, but he is thanking God, family, friends and the team of medical professionals at the hospital for diligently caring for him during his aliment.
A video of his release has been making the rounds via social media.
Meanwhile, another long-term COVID-19 patient, Keith Dover, has returned to work, even as he continues rebuilding exercises to improve his mobility.
