A 103-year-old Chinese grandmother has made a full recovery from COVID-19 after being treated for 6 days in Wuhan, China.
She was discharged from the hospital yesterday, and the reason for the speedy recovery is said to be that she didn’t have any other underlying health problems.
Zhang Guanfen, the grandmother, is the oldest patient to recover from coronavirus so far. Surprisingly, she got recovered in less than a week once treatment was started. A video was published showing the woman being escorted out of the hospital to a waiting ambulance by a group of medical workers as she was discharged on Tuesday.
Her doctor Zeng Yulan told the local press that the patient was cured in less than a week because she “did not have many underlying health conditions”.
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. “Ms Zhang gradually recovered after being given round-the-clock care and nutrition therapy sessions”, Liao added. 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.
Another centenarian who was infected with the coronavirus just after his 101st birthday has recovered after spending a week in the hospital.
The former patient, known by his surname Dai, was discharged last week from Wuhan Third Hospital.Mr Dai appeared to look ‘very energetic’ when he left the hospital, Li Lai, the matron told the press. He often talked about his 92-year-old wife.
He said he needed to get better soon so he could go home and take care of her,’ Li Lai added.
China government is encouraging its people to fight against this deadly virus.
The Chinese president also visited Wuhan to meet people over there.Although this deadly virus has killed almost 3,158 people in the nation and 4,325 worldwide, the president’s visit is a clear gesture of china’s victory over this virus.
Different countries across the globe are equally affected by this virus.
