102-year-old woman becomes oldest person to recover from COVID-19 in Greece


A 102-year-old woman has become the oldest person in Greece to recover from COVID-19 after she was hospitalised with the virus.

According to Greece’s state broadcaster ERT, the woman was living in a care home in the city of Ioannina when she was diagnosed with COVID-19.

She was transferred to a hospital on the island of Corfu where “she had a high fever for several days, as well as other symptoms of the disease,” the general manager of the hospital, Leonidas Roubatis, said.

“She did not need intubation,” Mr Roubatis added in an interview with state-run news agency, AMNA.

After 20 days, the woman recovered and was discharged from the hospital. She later returned to her care home in Ioannina.

“We are proud of everyone who is discharged and wins the battle against the coronavirus,” Mr Roubatis said.
