BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Baltimore man infected with COVID-19 is now headed home.

His emotional sendoff even caught the eye of the Baltimore Ravens.

Michael Greene contracted the virus and had to be hospitalized. He spent seven weeks in a hospital in downtown Baltimore.

Thursday, he was discharged and headed home.

Many from the hospital gathered around and wished him well during the sendoff.

Greene has always been a huge Ravens fan, so the team sent him a letter thanking him for his bravery.

The letter said Greene truly fought like a Raven and recovered like a true champion.
