Georgia Hospital medical staff celebrated the first successful recovery of Coronavirus patients who were under Intensive care due to the severity of their illness.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has claimed a lot of lives and infected so much more, so when an almost impossible recovery takes place, the health care workers are sure to celebrate.

This was the case when Mrs. Jones, who was intubated, had recovered enough to be transferred out of the ICU. She was wheeled down the halls to another ward. 

The Crisp Regional hospital posted a video that showed the medical personnel lined up on either side of the hall, clapping as the woman was wheeled away. The caption read:

"...This morning the team from our COVID ICU celebrated with Mrs. Jones as she is the first patient who has recovered well enough to be transferred…"

Jones was welcomed by her mother and her two kids, who were all very happy to see her after a long period of separation.

The medical workers in Georgia are not the only ones who have been celebrating. A hospital in Kent also sent their first Coronavirus patient home with applause.

The patient, Biniam Kidane, became ill with a COVID-19 infection the day after he came back from a trip to Venice with his family.

Mr. Kidane was admitted late in march, after which his infection became even worse. He was moved to the ICU, where he was placed on a ventilator for almost two weeks.

Kidane was able to move back to the ward on the 7th of April and was sent home with an applause a few days later. The COVID-19 survivor waved and gave a thumbs up to the staff as he left the hospital.

His story was brought to light with a tweet by an NHS trust, which showed the video of his exit. The health workers on the frontline were commended in a statement made by the chief executive:

"I would like to thank our teams here who provide such highly-skilled, compassionate care, and it is very encouraging…"

A similar occurrence took place in a Jewish hospital in New York. The hospital staff discharged a minimum of three survivors and gave them the honor of special exits.

The chief medical director also shared different pictures, including one of a cake featuring figurines of a doctor and a nurse. 

It seems to be a time for applause as workers on the frontline received several during the recently concluded World Health Day.
