A Washington state mother thanked God for protecting her and her newborn daughter after she contracted the coronavirus this spring.
Angela Primachenko, 27, of Vancouver, Washington, went to the hospital March 24 with a fever and other symptoms of the virus, NBC/Today reported. The mother, 33-weeks pregnant, tested positive for the virus and eventually was placed in a medically-induced coma, according to the report.
Primachenko gave birth to her daughter, Ava, while in the coma; but today both mother and daughter are doing well, CBN News reports.
“Even in the hardest days and the hardest times, there’s hope,” Primachenko said. “And you can rely on God and people and community. The amount of community people that were praying for me is just unbelievable. I was blown away, and I’m so incredibly thankful. And I feel like I’m a miracle walking.”
Ava tested negative for the virus after she was born, according to the report.
Primachenko said she recently came off the ventilator, and she was discharged from the intensive care unit at the hospital.
“Everyone did a standing ovation and just clapped me out of the ICU, which was so amazing and such a huge thing to be able to leave the ICU and go to the floors,” she said. “It was just the grace of God.”
So far, she has only been allowed to see Ava, her husband, David, and their older daughter over video calls, but Primachenko and her family hope she will be home again soon.
