A 95-year-old grandmother who was diagnosed with the coronavirus this month has become the oldest patient in the Italian province of Modena to recover from the illness. 

Alma Clara Corsini, from Fanano, was rushed to a hospital in the city’s northern province of Pavullo on March 5 after showing signs of the virus- which has now claimed the lives of 5,476 in the nation.

However medical staff have now confirmed the pensioner’s body has shown a ‘great reaction’ and made a full recovery. 

Ms Corsini told Italian newspaper Gazzetta Di Modena: ‘Yes, yes, I’m fine. They were good people who looked after me well, and now they’ll send me home in a little while. ‘
