‘Miracle man’ battled coronavirus for 214 days

‘MIRACLE man’ who battled for 214 days in hospital after being diagnosed with coronavirus finally goes home.

Richard Misior, 81, spent 214 days in Gold Coast University Hospital, Queensland, Australia, after contracting coronavirus on the Ruby Princess cruise ship in March.

Doctors feared the Surfers Paradise native wouldn’t survive as he spent his first 77 days in intensive care. Indeed, once on the road to recovery, Mr Misior had to undergo intensive rehabilitation, even learning to walk again.

Speaking of his ordeal to the Sunshine Coast Daily, the brave pensioner described his symptoms. “My vision changed, my hearing got worse, my taste was ruined and my voice disappeared,” he explained.

Mr Misior was finally released from hospital on Thursday, October 23.

“Some people call me the miracle man, but the real miracle workers are the nurses and doctors of this unit,” he said.

He was finally released from hospital on Thursday.

To date, 905 people have died from coronavirus in Australia, 817 of whom lived in Victoria.
