WATCH: Centenarian great-grandmother believed to be UK’s oldest patient to beat coronavirus leaves hospital

A 106-YEAR-OLD great-grandmother believed to be the oldest person in the UK to beat the coronavirus has left hospital.

Connie Titchen from Birmingham got a clean bill of health from medics this week after she was admitted with suspected pneumonia last month and tested positive for Covid-19 soon after.

“I feel very lucky that I’ve fought off this virus. I can’t wait to see my family”, she said as she left Birmingham City Hospital after her nearly three-week battle against the virus.

Sister Kelly Smith who looked after Kelly described the centenarian as “amazing.

“It’s been fantastic to see Connie recover.” she said.
