80-year-old COVID-19 survivor returns home

For nearly as long as the United States has been wrestling with the COVID-19 pandemic, Avram Woidislawsky has been fighting it himself.

The 80-year-old was the very first patient admitted to the ICU at Pennsylvania Hospital on March 22, 2020.

After 81 days on a ventilator and two months in a medically-induced coma, Avram is believed to be a miracle survivor.β€œWe were called to the hospital four different times to say goodbye but he made it.

We didn’t have to say goodbye,” said his wife, Rita Woidislawsky.
