The novel coronavirus has infected more than 5 lakh people and claimed over 24,000 lives across the world. Italy is one of the worst-hit countries and has reported the highest number of fatalities.
Amid this scenario, a 101-year-old man in Rimini, Italy has recovered from the novel coronavirus. The man is referred to as Mr. P and has now been taken home by his family, according to reports, reports India Today.
According to Vice-Mayor of Rimini, Gloria Lisi, Mr. P was born in 1919 and was admitted to the hospital last week after testing positive for Covid-19. Speaking about the case, Lisi said, "Everyone saw hope for the future of all of us in the recovery of a person more than 100 years old."
"Every day we see the sad stories from these weeks that mechanically tell about a virus that rages and is especially aggressive on the elderly. But he survived. Mr. P. survived," Lisi added.
The Vice-Mayor said that Mr. P's family took him home on Wednesday. "His family brought him home last night (Wednesday), leaving behind a lesson that even at the age of 101, the future is not set."
That's indeed a happy news amid the difficult times that the world is going through.
