A new mother has walked out of hospital to a guard of honour after beating Covid-19.

Patient Felicia Adio has been able to return home to her family for the first time in three weeks after she caught coronavirus in March and was taken to Darent Valley Hospital for treatment.

In a wholesome video, NHS staff at the hospital clapped the 31-year-old patient as she walked out of the hospital having made a full recovery, saying they were "delighted to perform a guard of honour."



Ms Adio, who works as a Nursery Assistant, left the hospital carrying an Easter egg to return to her family and baby after three weeks away.

Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust called it "brilliant news" which was largely down to the excellent work of staff at the hospital.
