Since the family had been quarantined for over a year and if they had to go anywhere, they went on full precaution; she was shocked to hear about the Covid test.

She was quickly rushed to the nearest hospital. Seeing Katie in such a state, Jeannie thought she might lose her. With the grace of God, Katie is fit and fine and free of Covid-19
