Everyone is looking for some good news these days. One of Newfoundland's COVID-19 cases can be ticked off after a woman made a full recovery. Not only that, but she also happens to be over 90-years-old.

In an April 16 Facebook post, Newfoundland resident Agatha Hickey shared that her 92-year-old mother, Rita, had made a full recovery after testing positive for the virus.

"It has been a terrifying and tearful 14 days to say the least for all of us, not knowing what day the dreaded Covid-19 virus would get a grip on her!" Hickey wrote.

"But with the strength she drew from each one of you supporting her in so many ways, she overcame any threat it may have posed!"

Photos included with the update showed Rita happily holding a container of Lysol wipes and a bottle of Lamb's rum, wearing a pink t-shirt that reads, "I kicked COVID-19's ass!"

The post also listed thanks to people for their FaceTime calls, songs, and even a motorcade in Rita's honour.

In a previous post on April 3, Hickey wrote about the experience of her mother testing positive for COVID-19. 

According to her account, Rita had come into contact with someone who had lied about their proximity to other people.

On top of that, they had been spending time with someone that had been part of a cluster of cases originating from a single funeral home.

"And not only did you put her at risk but also myself, my daughter, the kids I babysit and their families and it goes on and on!" Hickey wrote.

Hickey concluded her post about her mother's recovery by recognizing how important it is to follow social distancing rules put in place to protect people.

"Stay home! Stay Safe! We really don’t want to have to do this all over again! Love to you all from all of us," she wrote.
