‘It’s been a roller coaster but hospital staff performed a miracle’

THE family of a local NHS worker who contracted Covid-19 and spent 106 days in critical care said staff “performed a miracle” – after he recovered enough to be moved to another ward today. 

A video on Twitter shows Ian Towley, who works at York Hospital, being transferred from critical care to a different ward to continue his recovery as staff lined the corridors to applaud him. 

A family member of Ian said that it had been a “roller coaster few months” for the family. She said: “I’m just so glad he’s been taken care of at the hospital where he works, as they have quite literally performed a miracle.”
