A 102-year-old woman from Italy was hospitalized — and now she’s reportedly stunning doctors after successfully recovering from the illness.
Doctors who treated Italica Grondona are now calling her “Highlander – the immortal” after she spent more than 20 days at San Martino Hospital in Genoa, only to survive the virus that has been especially threatening to people around her age.
She also lived through the 1918-1919 Spanish Flu Pandemic — which killed at least 50 million people worldwide, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Doctors thought would be interesting to study.
Eventually, Italica became well enough to get discharged from the hospital on March 26. She has since been recovering in a care home, according to CNN.
