95-year-old grandmother becomes the oldest woman in Italy to recover from coronavirus
A 95-year-old grandmother has become the oldest known woman in Italy to recover from coronavirus.
The northern region of Italy has been hit hard by the pandemic, while the country overall now has 53,578 confirmed cases with 4,825 deaths.
Alma Clara Corsini was among those diagnosed with the virus and was admitted to hospital in Pavullo on March 5.
But doctors and specialists oversaw her remarkable recovery and she has become the first person in the northern province of Modena to recover from coronavirus.
“Yes, yes, I’m fine,’ she said earlier this week. They were good people who looked after me well.”
According to Gazzetta Di Modena, doctors confirmed she was able to recover without “antiviral therapy” and her body showed a “great reaction”. Ms Corsini has now been discharged from hospital and has returned to her home in Fanano.
