Uckfield woman defied the odds and recovers from COVID-19

A 83 year old has defied the odds – and made a miraculous recovery from coronavirus.

That’s Pam Baisden from Uckfield – who contracted the disease while in hospital.

It quickly got very bad – so bad in fact that she was admitted to Saint Wilfrid’s Hospice in Eastbourne for end of life care.

But she rallied – and is now back home with her husband Alan.

And she’s telling her story to inspire others to fight the horrible disease.

Sara Smith has been to meet her:
