Marisol Gonzalez knows exactly how to describe her battle with COVID-19.

“I stared death in the eyes,” said the 37-year-old Victoria woman who was discharged from the intensive care unit at DeTar Hospital Navarro on Wednesday.

Four days earlier, on June 20, she said the disease caused by the coronavirus brought her to the brink of death.
