A 90-year-old woman who contracted coronavirus at Life Care Center senior care facility in Seattle has recovered, her family says. Life Care Center experienced a massive spread of the virus in mid-February. According to a CDC investigation, 62% of the roughly 130 elderly residents had become infected and more than a quarter of them have died.
Geneva Wood, however, is now a beacon of hope for the thousands of Americans with the virus – and the millions more fearing it. Health officials have said elderly people and those with chronic medical problems are especially vulnerable to the disease.
Wood, who lived at Life Care Center, tested positive for coronavirus on March 6, her grand-daughter-in-law, Kate Neidigh writes in “Seattle Refined.”

Neidigh, a fashion writer for the local publication, says this is not a “doom and gloom” story. Wood is a “true fighter,” Neidigh writes, explaining her husband’s grandmother moved to the care center in January after suffering a stroke.
“Just when my mom beat one thing, another ‘thing’ rolled her way,” Kate Neidigh’s mother-in-law, and Wood’s daughter, Cami Neidigh says.
When Wood tested positive for COVID-19, the family was “stricken, and in shock,” and “mad,” Neidigh writes. Wood, however had a different outlook. “I’m going to fight this for my family and make everyone proud,” she told Cami through a glass pane while in isolation at the hospital.
Cami Neidigh also wrote a post about her mother, tagging the 90-year-old on Facebook in the uplifting update. “It’s the Potato Soup!!! She knew that’s what she needed to help her get better!” Neidigh joked. “It’s working and the doctor and nurses are wanting the recipe!”
