101 Year Old Man Survives Coronavirus by Jessy Samuel Ejah

A 101-year-old man has been released from hospital confinement after recovering from COVID-19. This was reported by the Italian city of Rimini deputy mayor, Gloria Lisi. The old man, only identified as "Mr. P.," was admitted last week to a Rimini hospital in northeast Italy, after he was tested positive for the pandemic the world is currently suffering from.

He was released from confinement on Thursday. In addition, the mayor said, this was "truly extraordinary" and that such a recovery from a man, more than a hundred years old, would give "hope for the future." The city head also expressed how an old man has instilled in people that "even at 101 years, the future is not written."

This old man was born in 1919, the same period of the Spanish Flu, the pandemic that killed approximately 30 to 50 million people globally. He grew up between World War I and WWII and now, he turned out to be the oldest patient to recover from COVID-19 in Italy.
