99-year-old Vancouver man recovers from COVID-19
99 year-old Reuben Huva, who tested positive for COVID-19, has "recovered completely" and is back to his "cheerful old self," says his daughter.
Mr. Huva, who lives in a retirement home, started showing minor symptoms earlier this month and tested positive on March 11; as did a staff member at the home. Both he and the staff member have fully recovered.
His daughter Linda, a retired doctor, was permitted to visit her father in his care home—with protective gear—and credits the workers at Hollyburn House for "caring tremendously" for her dad; and taking precautions to prevent COVID-19 from spreading further. The staff are keeping up those measures.
She says physical distancing made a difference at her father's care home and will protect other vulnerable people. "We need to stay the course, we need to stay apart from each other to protect our elderly population... even though some will do well with this, as in my father's case."
Mr. Huva turns 100 years-old in December.
