This century-old man is a living marvel — an Italian born during the Spanish flu who has now recovered from the coronavirus.
The man, who is 101 years old and identified only as “Mr. P,” tested positive for COVID_19 and was hospitalized in the northeast city of Rimini last week — only to leave the hospital Thursday after beating the bug, CNN reports.
Gloria Lisi, Rimini’s deputy mayor, called the recovery “truly extraordinary” and inspired “hope for the future.”
“Mr. P made it. The family brought him home yesterday evening. To teach us that even at 101 years the future is not written,” she said.
