Amritsar, September 4

Where there's a will, there's a way. Nonagenarian Gurnam Singh, who was tested Covid-positive, proved this proverb right as he emerged victorious in his fight against the infection.

"I suffered from fever, chest congestion and breathing issues for 10 days before I was admitted to Medicity Hospital for 18 days. When my Covid test report came out positive, I didn't lose hope and prepared myself to fight it out. The doctors and volunteers also took good care of me," says Gurnam Singh, who was born in 1924 in Chabba village, near Amritsar.

Dr Avtar Singh, owner, Medicity Hospital, says more than the medicines, it was Gurnam's willpower and witty nature that did wonders. "He was admitted to the ICU as his oxygen level was low. He was administered anti-virus drugs, yet we believe that more than the medicines, the miracle of his recovery at such an age was the result of a disciplined lifestyle and, above all, the habit of 'naam japna' (continuous chanting of God's name)," Dr Avtar says.

Gurnam Singh reveals the secret of his health. "Till date, I walk 5 km to pay obeisance at the Golden Temple daily. I have been a witness to the makeover of the shrine and its surroundings," he says.
