114-year-old Ethiopian monk could be oldest coronavirus survivor

An Ethiopian monk may be the oldest person to have survived coronavirus, beating the disease after being hospitalized for three weeks.

Tilahun Woldemichael's exact age is unverifiable as he has no birth certificate, but his family believes him to be 114 years old. If so, he could well be the oldest person so far to have survived COVID-19, edging ahead of Spain's Maria Branyas, 113, who survived the virus in May with only mild symptoms.
