Janice Cockfield was rewarded by her employer after she fought tooth-and-nail to beat the coronavirus

What reward would you expect if you emerge victorious in a fight against the deadly coronavirus? Janice Cockfield, who battled Covid-19 for 115 days, was gifted a ‘first-class trip’ of her dreams for Christmas.

The miracle survivor from South Fulton in the US was surprised by her employer Delta Airlines after the company's CEO Ed Bastian announced a first-class trip for her to anywhere in the world.

Cockfield's story came to light after sisters Janice and Janese shared their medical struggle in a television interview - everything that the family had to go through after Janice was hospitalised owing to a brush with the novel coronavirus. It was a phenomenal story of survival as Janice was in hospital and rehabilitation centres for about 115 days, including a coma for 57 days, fighting to survive against the coronavirus.

Janice Cockfield's story would inspire all those who have been stricken by the coronavirus. 

The ordeal of the 59-year-old went viral on social media following which Janice received a message from the Delta Airlines chief announcing a gift of her dreams for the courage and strength she showed during the tough time.
