100-Year-Old Man Beats Coronavirus With Plasma Donation, China Claims

A 100-year-old man from Wuhan, China where the virus outbreak is believed to have started, was recently discharged from the hospital after being cleared of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The man is now considered the oldest person to ever be cured of the virus after he was released from the branch of Hubei’s Maternity and Child Health Care Hospital at the Optics Valley in Wuhan on Saturday, according to state-run news Xinhua. The previous record-holder was a 98-year-old woman who beat the virus at Leishenshan (Thunder God Mountain) Hospital in Wuhan.
