The woman suffered from no other pathologies than the novel coronavirus.
The centenary patient left the hospital on Friday evening with 12 other patients, after two consecutive laboratory tests confirmed that her body was free of the virus, according to Hespress.
Health professionals diagnosed the woman with COVID-19 after being infected by her son, who also infected her daughter-in-law.
The COVID-19 survivor is the oldest recovered patient that Morocco has recorded so far, a milestone that follows the recovery of the country’s youngest COVID-19 patient, a two-month-old infant, also at CHU Fez.
According to Moroccan news outlets, the 110-year-old woman suffered from no other pathologies than COVID-19.
Many other centenarians have recovered from the virus around the world, despite the disease’s known increased impact on the elderly.
A 113-year-old Spanish woman also recovered from COVID-19 in mid-May, according to Le Figaro. “Super centenary” is what Spanish people chose to call her. “She overcame the disease and is doing very well,” the same source reported.
