A 100-year-old Indonesian woman has recovered from coronavirus, making her the country’s oldest survivor of the deadly respiratory illness.
Kamtim, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, was discharged from hospital this week after a month of treatment in her hometown Surabaya, Indonesia’s second-biggest city, officials said.
East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawansa said she hoped Kamtim’s story would give a boost to at-risk residents － the illness is especially dangerous for older people and those with chronic conditions.
Born in 1920, Kamtim was taken to hospital last month after showing symptoms and she was later confirmed to have contracted the virus.
Indonesia has confirmed more than 26,000 cases of coronavirus and 1,613 deaths. Researchers estimate the true number of virus infections and fatalities is several times the official toll.
