Specific question

The lesson says that when talking about specifics, you use être, but the kwiz said this should be aller:

Martine était malade, mais elle ________ mieux à présent.

She is feeling better at present sounds like it is specific, so why is 'est' not right here?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Expressing how you are with aller (greetings)"

I think maybe I get it. "I feel better" is general, but "I AM tired" is specific.

So its more about the fact that feelings are general, but you are something specific.

Bonjour Rant !

C'est exactement ça !

But I agree it can be made clearer in the lesson, and so I did just that :)

I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !
