A 95-year-old grandmother who was diagnosed with the coronavirus this month has become the oldest patient in Modena to recover from the illness.
Alma Clara Corsini, from Fanano, was rushed to a hospital in the city’s northern province of Pavullo on March 5 after showing signs of the virus- which has now claimed the lives of 5,476 in the nation.
However medical staff has now confirmed the pensioner’s body has shown a ‘great reaction’ and made a full recovery.
Ms Corsini told an Italian newspaper:
‘Yes, yes, I’m fine. They were good people who looked after me well, and now they’ll send me home in a little while.’. The 95-year-old has since been discharged and has returned home.
