94-year-old WWII vet released from hospital after COVID-19 battle
A 94-year-old Long Island man was released from the hospital a year older and a COVID-19 survivor.
Seymour Perlmutter’s family says he was admitted to Huntington Hospital on April 4 with a fever of 104 - a day before his 94th birthday.
After a week of battling the illness from his hospital bed, his family says the WWII veteran was released on Saturday.
"He had 72 hours of no temperature, he was sitting up in a chair, and he actually walked 50 feet. And they let him go, and he went to rehab and he will recover. He's a very stubborn guy, he made it through this, and he made it through WWII,” says his daughter, Gail Katz.
