While we often read about doom and gloom stories about the coronavirus that has a current worldwide death rate of 2 to 4%, the media generally isn’t so quick to offer stories of hope.
While the population most at risk are individuals over the age of 60 with underlying health problems, some of them are beating the odds. One person is 90-year-old Geneva Wood, a resident at the Life Care Center in Washington.
Geneva Wood defeated the new coronavirus with the support of her family, faith in God and a nutritious potato soup. In an interview with Good Morning America, Wood said: “I have beaten the coronavirus. I have so much to live for, and God has given me the strength to do so.”
Geneva Wood has five children, 11 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Wood is a mother of five and is recovering from a stroke at the Life Care Center nursing facility.
The nursing facility was hit hard by the coronavirus and thirty-five patients died from the coronavirus. She was diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 6th and was moved to a local hospital on March 11th.
Geneva Wood’s family giving her the biggest hug ever after she beat COVID-19. Roughly 3 weeks after being first diagnosed, Geneva Wood received the news she was waiting for from her doctors,
she had beaten COVID-19 and was on the road to recovery. “They called, said we could come up and give her a hug,” said Neidigh. “She gave me the longest
hardest hug that I’ve ever had in my life.” Geneva Wood is expected to recover at her daughter’s home and return to the nursing facility when the virus outbreak is under control.
