On March 18, after several days of antibiotic failure, she was placed in intensive care. She spent 40 days in a coma battling pneumonia, coronavirus and sepsis.

She had a wash tube inserted in her mouth, a saline solution was used to rinse her lungs.

Soon his ability to breathe increased to 40% as his health improved dramatically. It is now 70%.

The couple have ruled out talking on FaceTime as they both find it too emotional to speak through a screen after so many times apart.

Tonight, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he was “absolutely delighted” with the news of Fatima’s recovery. He added, “It proves that no matter who you are, the NHS is there for you and your family. “

Ex-Private Tracy said of his wife, “This is my medical miracle. Being on a ventilator for that long and surviving is amazing. I can’t wait to see her again.

At the end of April, Fatima was free from Covid, but still suffered from pneumonia. The following month, she was supported by a ventilator, but not completely dependent.

Her husband said, “The first words she said were, ‘I want to talk to my Tracy’. She didn’t know what had happened nor did she realize how long she had been there.

One of Fatima’s lungs has collapsed and she will never be able to breathe at full capacity again.

Tracy, who met Fatima online in 2016 and has four children from other relationships, said the couple returned from Morocco without checking the news.

They had no idea of ​​the growing threat of the coronavirus as the disease rapidly spread across the world.

It comes as daily updates on coronavirus-related deaths have been suspended as the way deaths are recorded may have exaggerated England’s toll by more than 4,000.

The UK recorded 40 coronavirus-related deaths on Saturday, bringing the total number of confirmed deaths during the pandemic to 45,273.

There were 827 positive tests for the coronavirus across the UK on Saturday, while Scotland recorded 21 positive tests – the highest since June 21, when there were 26.

Public Health England counts all deaths as Covid-related if the person had already tested positive for the virus – even if they recovered from it months ago.

This has raised concerns that some who clearly did not die from the disease – for example, if they were killed in a traffic accident long after a positive test – are incorrectly recorded as Covid deaths – 19.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock ordered a review on Friday of how PES counts coronavirus deaths, which is different from how they are recorded in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland .

And yesterday, the Department of Health and Social Affairs stopped issuing daily updates on Covid-19 deaths – highlighting how seriously ministers take the issue.

The gov.uk website said figures for Covid-19 ‘deaths in all settings’ were ‘not available’.

In a sign of mounting tension, PHE stood by its arms yesterday and continued to publish the disputed daily death toll on its Covid-19 “dashboard”.

However, PHE also tweeted an analysis which calculated that if England adapted its way of calculating Covid-19-related deaths to decentralized administrations, its death toll would drop by 4,149 deaths – or nearly 10%.
