Earlier we reported on signs that Italy’s outbreak may have passed its peak – its daily death toll on Sunday was the lowest in two weeks.
Also this weekend, media are reporting the story of 104-year-old grandmother Ada Zanusso who survived Covid-19 in Lessona, in northern Italy.
She was living in a nursing home where 20 residents died from the virus.
“She has lost none of his lucidity and intelligence. Her recovery is a great joy and a reward for all those who have looked after her in these difficult days, ” her doctor Carla Furno Marchese told La Repubblica newspaper.
She’s not the only very old survivor, but her story provides some hope as we report on the global death toll.
