A 106-year-old woman, thought to be Britain’s oldest patient to recover from coronavirus, has been discharged from hospital.

Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust said, the woman; a great-grandmother, Connie Titchen, who underwent a hip operation last December, was admitted to Birmingham City Hospital in mid-March with suspected pneumonia and diagnosed with Covid-19 soon afterwards.

In a statement issued by the Trust, the retired shop worker, Titchen said: ‘I feel very lucky that I’ve fought off this virus. I can’t wait to see my family.’

Meanwhile, UK’s coronavirus daily death toll stays below 800 in fourth day in a row as 761 new fatalities were recorded, including a 20-year-old on Wednesday.

This sparks hopes that the country’s lockdown is working.

However, total death toll in UK now almost 13,000.
