106-year-old British woman Connie Titchen is now oldest coronavirus survivor
Retired shop worker, Connie Titchen, was discharged from Birmingham's City Hospital after she was admitted in mid-March with suspected pneumonia. The 106-year-old great grandmother from Britain was given a rousing round of applause by the hospital staff, who praised her resilience and fighting spirit against the coronavirus. She said: "I feel very lucky that I've fought off this virus,".
Ms. Titchen is said to have expressed her excitement to see her family once again upon her release from the hospital according to a statement issued by the Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust. The trust further added saying Connie Titchen is probably Britain's oldest patient to recover from the coronavirus with her granddaughter, Alex Jones saying, "She has had a really active life. 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."
Ms. Alex Jones added, "The care she has received at the hospital has been brilliant and I can't fault it. I want to thank the staff for all they have done for her during her stay." Sister Kelly Smith, who has been attending to Ms. Titchen, the great-grandmother of eight, too in a statement said, "It's been fantastic to see Connie recover. She is amazing and we've been doing our best to nurse her back to health. It's nice to see patients leave our ward after having beaten this virus."
