An 80-year-old Colorado Woman is Now Home After Beating COVID-19
An 80-year-old Colorado woman is now home after beating COVID-19. Virginia Herrera has been fighting the coronavirus since April and three months later, she won.
Virginia Herrera was diagnosed with COVID-19 in April, according to KOAA. She was hospitalized twice, put into a coma, and more during her courageous battle against the coronavirus. Three months later she's finally beat it and is now home.
Virginia is a cancer survivor who got bilateral pneumonia during her battle and according to KOAA, she was in a medically induced coma for 20 days. She says she went through a lot of ventilators, a trec., medication and treatments to make it through. Virginia had to get a tracheotomy to help her breathe.
According to KOAA, one of Virginia's neighbors said:
We feel it's a miracle that Virginia has lived through this, 97 days, and 60 something days on a ventilator.
Grandma Virginia was welcomed home by her family who made signs, a banner, and was waiting for her with open arms, lots of love, and masks, of course. Her coworkers, neighbors, and family all joined in on her welcome home parade.
Virginia Herrera seems like a very strong woman who can overcome any challenge that comes her way, including cancer and COVID-19. Her family seems very happy that she's home and that they can spend time with her. According to KOAA, one of her grandsons said that she always has the door open for us and all of them love their grandma.
