106-year-old woman defeats coronavirus in Maharashtra
Mumbai : A 106-year-old woman from Maharashtra's Thane district has successfully defeated coronavirus and she was discharged from the hospital on Sunday with doctors and nurses giving her warm farewell.
In an image shared on social media, the woman can be seen with a mile long smile as she carries her discharge card from the hospital. She was admitted for around 10-days.
After the Dombivli-based centenarian contracted the disease, no hospital was initially ready to admit her due to her age, said her daughter-in-law, who were happy to see her mother-in-law discharged from the hospital after recovering from the disease.
She was finally admitted 10 days back to the COVID-19 treatment facility set up by the Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) at Savlaram Krida Sankul (sports complex) and doctors and medical teams there took proper care of her, the daughter-in-law said.
"We are really thankful to the hospital's medical team who took proper care of her and helped her in defeating the coronavirus," she said.
Dr Rahul Ghule, managing director of ''One Rupee Clinic', made an appreciation post on social media for his team who took good care of the lady. "We are happy that she successfully responded to the treatment," he said, adding that the hospital was opened on July 27, and so far it has treated 1,100 COVID-19 patients.
''One Rupee Clinics'', which charge Re 1 per patient for their services, have been set up at select stations on the Central Railway''s suburban section to provide emergency help to rail accident victims and give medical treatment to the general public.
