The 48-year old mother, Zuliswa Maqana could not help but jubilate after been cured. The hospital’s spokesperson Alaric Jacobs in a statement said no one expected the 48-year-old mother to dance out of the hospital “but the jubilation was there for all to see” when she was discharged on Monday.

“I didn’t know what day it was [when I entered the hospital] and I couldn’t move for weeks. But they (hospital staff) helped me learn to walk again after 77 days. And they were all so happy for me when I could go home,” Maqana said.

“Everybody was so nice to me and the doctors were wonderful. I am so happy with the treatment I got at Groote Schuur.”

Jacob said Maqana had severe Covid-19 pneumonia when she was admitted to Mitchells Plain District Hospital on 4 May. She was transferred to Groote Schuur Hospital a day later. She was immediately admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) and was intubated and ventilated there for 51 days out her 54-day ICU stay.

General surgeon Dr Henri Pickardt said it was a “rocky course” for Maqana in ICU because she experienced complications and other infections along the way but she made it out stronger.
