NHS clap recovered patient leaving hospital


NHS staff lined the corridors clapping and cheering on Sunday as one of their own walked out following a “miracle” recovery from Covid-19. Radiographer Paul Skegg suffered a rare complication of coronavirus that led to total muscular paralysis of the whole body. But after 11 days in intensive care – during which he proposed to his girlfiend over FaceTime – the 42-year-old walked out of Darent Valley Hospital today with a guard of honour.
