A 93-year-old Syrian resident of Abu Dhabi has recovered from Covid-19 after spending weeks in the Intensive Care Unit at Al Rahba Hospital in Abu Dhabi.

Nour Hamdi had visited Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City to undergo diagnostic tests involving her urinary tract.

While at the hospital, she underwent a Covid-19 test and tested positive, and she was immediately transferred to Al Rahba Hospital to receive treatment.

By God's grace and the timely medical care and efforts provided by medics at the hospital, Hamdi has recovered and has been transferred out of the intensive care unit.

A video shared by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) shows medical workers at the hospital clapping hands in happiness as the elderly woman was taken out of the ICU after her condition improved.

She will continue receiving treatment at the hospital.

"Thank you, your Highnesses. Thank you to the UAE with its leadership, government and people," her son, who has lived in the UAE for nearly 40 years, said while expressing happiness about the recovery of his mother.
