106years Old Woman Survives Coronavirus

A 106-year-old woman thought to be Britain's oldest patient to recover from coronavirus has been discharged from Birmingham's City Hospital.

Connie Titchen battled the virus for just under three weeks before she was given a clean bill of health by medics at the hospital.

The great-grandmother, from Birmingham, said: “I feel very lucky that I’ve fought off this virus. I can’t wait to see my family.”

Her granddaughter Alex Jones, said the family have come to expect the hardy grandmother to bounce back from medical ailments.

“She has had a really active life," Alex said.

"She loved to dance, cycle and play golf.

“She has always cooked for herself too, although she likes a cheeky McDonald's every now and then. I haven’t told her they are closed.

“I think the secret of her old age is that she is physically active and very independent. She had a hip operation back in December and within 30 days she was walking again.

"She really is amazing and I know all the family can’t wait to see her. She has quite a few fans."

Connie, who was born in September, 1913 and has lived through two World Wars, was admitted to City Hospital in mid-March with suspected pneumonia.

She was diagnosed with coronavirus soon afterwards.
