‘A 103-year-old grandmother has recovered from the coronavirus following six-day treatment in Wuhan.
The centenarian, Zhang Guangfen, was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon.
She is so far the oldest coronavirus patient to recover in China and two years older than the previous recorder-holder, 101.
Ms Zhang was cured within less than a week because ‘she did not have many underlying health conditions’, her doctor Zeng Yulan told the local press.
A video shows the former patient being escorted out of the hospital by a group of medical workers.
The grandmother was diagnosed with the deadly disease on March 1 at Liyuan Affiliated Hospital of Tongji Medical College in Wuhan, Hubei Province of central China.
She was in critical condition and could barely communicate with the medics when she was admitted to the hospital.
The nurses took turns to spoon-feed the patient and change diapers for her, said a matron, Liao Zhenhui, to local media Chutian Metropolis Daily.’
