The Weakest, Most Hyped Up Plague Ever Couldn’t Even Kill a 101-Year Old Man
An Italian centenarian shakes off covid-19 like the glorified cold that it is
[A] 101-year-old man was released from hospital after recovering from the coronavirus, Gloria Lisi, the deputy mayor of the Italian city of Rimini, has said.
The man, who has been named only as “Mr. P,” was admitted to hospital in Rimini, northeast Italy, last week after testing positive for Covid-19 and left the hospital on Thursday. [Short stay may indicate he didn’t even require any special medical assistance.]
Lisi said his “truly extraordinary” recovery gave “hope for the future.” [What’s extraordinary about beating a glorified common cold?]
“Mr. P made it. The family brought him home yesterday evening. To teach us that even at 101 years the future is not written,” she said.
Mr. P was born in 1919, during the Spanish flu pandemic, which is estimated to have killed between 30 million and 50 million people worldwide.
