A 104-year-old Colombian woman has received a standing ovation from hospital staff after recovering from Covid-19 for a second time.
Carmen Hernandez was first diagnosed with coronavirus in June 2020, and she was treated in her San Jose nursing home.
The second time, she was admitted to intensive care and spent 21 days in hospital – until she was discharged on Monday.
Actor Ruthie Henshall has spoken about her happiness at being able to see her mother, Gloria, again in her care home after restrictions were eased two weeks ago.
She can now go into the care home and feed her mother lunch, read to her, or sing her favourite songs. Speaking to BBC Breakfast, she said the improvement in her mum’s condition had been “incredible”.
