Gloria Lisi, the deputy mayor of the Italian city, recently announced details of the patient. While his identity was kept anonymous, Lisi disclosed that the patient was admitted to the hospital last week after testing positive for COVID-19. He then left the hospital this Thursday, March 26.

According to Lisi, his “truly extraordinary” recovery gave “hope for the future.”

“Mr. P made it. The family brought him home yesterday evening. To teach us that even at 101 years the future is not written,” she said.

It is also interesting to note that “Mr. P” was born in 1919 during the Spanish flu pandemic. That pandemic was estimated to have killed between 30 million to 50 million people worldwide.

According to Johns Hopkins University, Italy has recorded a total of 80,589 COVID-19 cases with 8,215 deaths so far.
