Among the recovered, there is Rasmiye Isik.

Before COVID-19 diagnosis, Isik already suffered from heart and lung problems and she is likely to have contracted the virus from her son and daughter-in-law, who previously went to Saudi Arabia for their Umrah pilgrimage.

The couple was diagnosed with coronavirus on March 18 and their treatment started immediately.

Meanwhile, Isik also began to cough and was taken to a healthcare center, where she tested positive on March 22.

After successful treatment, Isik and her children were discharged from the hospital.

“I’ve beaten the disease, I’m so happy,” she said. “May Allah protect everyone from such trouble.”

Thankful for her recovery, she called on people to stay at home in a bid to prevent the spread of the virus.

Data compiled by the U.S.-based Johns Hopkins University shows worldwide infections surpassing 1.2 million with over 66,500 deaths.

An excess of 252,000 people has recovered.
