Doctors did not expect Martin to make it out of the ICU alive.

A man in the UK who had been given close to “zero chance” by doctors to survive after falling ill with COVID-19 spoke to the BBC about how the virus turned his life “upside down”.

Mal Martin, 58, was admitted a week after he felt ill and was on a ventilator for 61 days.

His wife and children even said goodbye to him before he slipped into an induced coma.

Martin’s recovery was described by the attending physicians as a “miracle.”
