A 95-year-old has become the oldest known woman to recover from coronavirus in Italy.

Alma Clara Corsini, from Fanano in the province of Modena, was diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier this month.

Corsini fully recovered from the Covid-19 without the need for antiviral treatment after her body showed a “great reaction” to the disease, doctors say. The hospital has discharged the 95-year-old. 


As per reports, Corsini became the ‘pride of the staff’ during her stay at the hospital that has been trying to cope with the increasing number of cases of COVID-19 in the country.

Italy, the epicenter of the virus in Europe, has had more than 59,000 cases of Covid-19 so far. The death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in Italy yesterday rose to 5476 – an increase of 651 from the day before.
