Mind Over Matter and Will PowerJul 27, 2020 02:16 PM
The deadly Covid-19 virus is like an angel of death that can kill anyone and strike any time. But a 101-year-old woman from Andhra Pradesh displayed remarkable fortitude and survived the deadly virus. She won the battle against the virus and according to doctors, it was sheer will power.
Palakuri Mangamma is an inspiration for other patients who are infected and undergoing treatment. The recovery is a miracle when considering the spike in the number of cases in the city.
Mangamma who was treated in Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences (SVIMS) had became the oldest patient to recover from Covid-19 illness.
Dr R Ram from SVIMS said, “She responded well to the treatment. She could beat the disease with her willpower. This is an inspiration for many.”
Dr Ram also emphasized on willpower and many people are losing hope when infected with the fatal virus. Mangamma was hope personified and the Doctor touched her feet when she was leaving the hospital.
There is another fascinating story of an 85-year-old woman from Vizianagaram district who recovered from the dreadful illness. She contracted the infection from her son who died and her grandsons were also infected with illness and getting treated.
These struggles are indeed fascinating and their willpower deserves admiration. They are in fact a ray of hope in these trying times.
