Georgia couple married more than 40 years both survive COVID-19 together

(WKYC) - At 85-years-old and 68-years-old, Chuck and Ging Gilliam have been married for more than 40 years.

They're rarely apart. But weeks ago, they were both diagnosed with COVID-19 and admitted into Piedmont Walton Hospital in Monroe, Georgia.“I don't know anybody where these things happen to both husband and wife,” said Ging.

"We were both in the ICU. We're both on respirators. We're just depending on those good hands and the prayers of the nurses over there.”
