The real problem with Covid-19 clearly isn’t its virulence or its lethality so much as its inexorable commitment.
Doctors and nurses in Italy are astounded at the resilience of one Maria Orsingher, a 101-year-old who has lived through the Spanish Flu, the Second World War, and who has now survived Covid-19… three times.
Orsingher first tested positive back in the early days of the pandemic in February. “In February, mother was hospitalized in Sondalo and then also the doctor of the hospital in Sondalo, where she was treated, told us that she had never had such an elderly person come out of the coronavirus in this way, she was breathing alone and not he had a fever,” says daughter Carla.
Having recovered, the centenarian then celebrated her 101st birthday in July. Unfortunately, she was then hospitalized with a fever in September, at which point she tested positive for the disease a second time and underwent treatment for 18 days. Medical staff were amazed at her resilience and told local media the hospitalization was mostly precautionary.
Alas, the coronavirus came for her one more time, as she tested positive again last Friday.
Covid vs Sig. Orsingher is the Godzilla vs Mothra of 2020.
