At 95, Alma Clara Corsini might be the oldest woman in Italy to recover from the novel coronavirus, and the Gazetta Di Modena reports she did it without antiviral therapy.
Corsini was admitted to a hospital in Pavullo in northern Italy on March 5 after being diagnosed with COVID-19, which has infected more than 60,000 people in Italy and killed more than 5,000. Older people are at especially high risk for contracting the disease, and the risk of serious illness or death increases after the age of 80.
“I’m fine,” she told the Italian newspaper. “They were good people who looked after me well, and now they’ll send me home in a little while.”
