A 101-year-old man fully recovers from Covid-19

Keith Watson, aged 101, has returned home after being treated for Covid-19 at Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, England.

He was admitted to hospital last month for surgery and tested positive for Covid-19.

At the age of 101 years old, Keith Watson has beat the coronavirus.

His daughter-in-law ‘Jo Watson’ told BBC that “He was in hospital having taken a tumble at his care home and needed surgery and that was a big enough ordeal at 101, but he got through that”.

She added “Having gone in for the operation is one thing and then when we learnt he was tested positive we were thinking the worst … but he’s amazing for his age.”
