For one patient, he could not have received a more heart-warming reception after months of battling the coronavirus.
Staff from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in King’s Lynn lined the corridors for Pete, who was reunited with his daughter having been fighting the disease since April after spending weeks in a coma.
Pete had been cared for by staff at both the QEH and Royal Papworth Hospital, and on Thursday (June 25), he was able to go outside for the first time in months.
Hundreds of residents took to social media to congratulate Pete on his recovery, who was grateful beyond belief.
Pete said: “I was saved by teams at QEH and at Papworth Hospital. I am grateful beyond everything and anything.”
