I feel like I have been given a third life, Mahadev Hari Patel, 56, said.

However, Mr Patel had to be re-admitted after he complained of difficulty in breathing. He is being given oxygen therapy at Global Hospital as a precaution, and his condition is medically stable.

“I am happy I will get to go home. I feel like I have been given a third life,” said Mr Patel, who had undergone a heart transplant surgery just two years ago.

His son Dinesh Patel is equally ecstatic and grateful to the doctors.

“My father had a close call in 2018 after his heart transplant. Though he was coping well, he got Covid and his health deteriorated drastically. He was kept on ventilator support. Thanks to the doctors at the Global Hospital, he is doing fine now,” he said.

Doctors at the Global Hospital have called Mr Patel’s recovery a “miracle” and now plan to publish a case study so it can serve as a guideline for treatment of other critically ill Covid patients.
