A 103-year-old Mexican woman suffering from a chronic pulmonary disease has survived a bout of Covid-19, the Mexican Social Security Institute announced.
The institute (IMSS), which is part of the Mexican healthcare system, said the woman, identified only as Dona Maria, had been hospitalized for 11 days.
She had tested positive for the virus but, despite her pulmonary problems, did not have other aggravating factors such as diabetes, obesity or high blood pressure.
“That’s what contributed to her treatment,”
the IMSS said in a statement on Saturday.
