A worried granddaughter has shared her joy as her 77-year-old grandmother has fought off the deadly coronavirus.

Amelie Upton, an eight-year-old from Chesham, spoke to the Bucks Free Press about her relief that her grandmother has survived Covid-19.

Her grandmother, Angela, tested positive for the virus on April 20 in Stoke Mandeville hospital.

Angela has dementia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other health problems which could make Covid-19 life threatening.

She tested negative on May 12 and left Stoke Mandeville hospital.


Angela is now spending six weeks in a nursing home in Gerrards Cross and has also been recovering from a partial hip replacement she had in early April.

Amelie said: "It’s been a hard time for our family and very worrying.

"To celebrate I have baked a rainbow cake.

"My Nan survived Covid -19!"

Amelia and her mother Lorraine delivered the cake to the nursing home.

They'd like to thank everyone at Stoke Mandeville hospital for the care Angela received.
