ANNAPOLIS, Md. — On Wednesday, caregivers at Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) formed a ‘clap line’ to celebrate the discharge of a COVID-19 patient.

After a five-day stay, the 33-year-old José Portillo from Annapolis is the medical center’s 300th discharged coronavirus patient.

“We are celebrating the courage and strength of José and all 300 patients to-date who have been discharged,” said Sherry Perkins, president of AAMC. “In witnessing this celebratory moment for our patient, I am deeply grateful to all of our care teams who are working tirelessly for these life-saving victories.”
