UK hospital’s joy as nurse discharged after 30 days

A nurse at the Conquest Hospital in Hastings, East Sussex, who contracted coronavirus, has been clapped by colleagues as she made her way out of the hospital after 30 days of treatment.

Uma Pradhan returned home having previously spent 23 days in the critical care unit and a further week on another ward continuing her recovery.

Thanking everyone who had helped her, she said: “I am really happy and excited to see my family after a long time.”

“From the bottom of my heart, I would like to give thanks to each and every person.

“This is my hospital and I am proud of this hospital and hopefully I will recover fully soon and I will come back to help Covid patients as well.”
