Opal Neal’s family was so excited to see their matriarch for the first time in weeks.

A family member, simply identified as Spears told fox6now.com that Neal ‘‘went through stages of declining, and on a ventilator, and having problems with her kidneys.’’

The family prayed in all kinds of places amid her ill health and thankfully she whooped the mess out of coronavirus.

Neal was transported from the hospital by Bell Ambulance and sang along as she listened to the harmonising voices of her family who tried to keep their distance as she was being moved.

Opal Neal, who turned 89 on April 28, 2020, is in good spirits, talking and walking again.

Just recently, YEN.com.gh reported that Ida Price of Louisana has beaten the odds after fighting off COVID-19 while at the same time battling cancer making her more of a medical miracle.

The 89-year-old grandma learned she had the coronavirus in late March 2020 after a relative tested positive.

Not long after, she was tested and diagnosed with COVID-19, though she showed no symptoms.

According to click2houston.com, Price said she didn’t have a fever and never had a cough. Neither did she experience any chest pains.
