According to reports, Alma Clara Corsini was admitted to hospital in Pavullo on March 5, where doctors and specialists saw her remarkable recovery to make her the oldest woman in the country to overcome the deadly disease, which is considered more vulnerable for the elderly.
As per reports, Corsini has been discharged from the hospital and has returned to her home in Fanano. While talking to the media, Corsini thanked the medical staff for looking after her and said that she feels good now. Earlier this week, a 97-year-old became the oldest man in Italy to recover from coronavirus. The man returned to his home in Cremona, Lombardy, after spending two weeks in the hospital. Lombardy in Northern Italy is the worst affected region in the country where most of the coronavirus cases have been recorded.
