Italian town of Rimini Celebrates as 101-year-old man beats Covid-19

Italy, a country gripped by the world’s worst novel coronavirus epidemic, celebrated on Thursday the remarkable recovery of 101-year-old man from the Covid-19.

The man, identified only as Mr P, was hospitalized about a week ago, and discharged on Thursday after fighting off the virus, his town of Rimini said in a statement.

According to Rimini’s Deputy Mayor, Gloria Lisi, it is in the darkest of times that certain stories take on a broader meaning.

Recalling that Mr P was born in the midst of the Spanish flu outbreak which killed at least 50 million people during the 1918-20.

Lisi said his recovery had given hope for the future of all Italians. Elderly people are particularly vulnerable to Covid-19.
