A 104-year-old Italian woman identified as Ada Zanusso has become the world's oldest person to survive the coronavirus.

Ada, who survived the 1918 Spanish Flu, took ill at her nursing home in Biella in northern Italy on Tuesday, March 17, eight days after the government imposed a lockdown on the country.

Daily Mail reports that after she started exhibiting symptoms which included a relentless bout of vomiting, fever, difficulty with breathing, she was tested for the virus, which came out positive.

Legit.ng notes that Ada's son Giampiero told The Sun: "I suspected it was coronavirus because of the number of cases at the care home. They have sadly had a few fatalities there."

Ada's doctor Carla Furno Marchese said the centenarian's recovery is a sign of hope for everyone suffering at these trying times.

Carla said: "She is up and about and not lying in bed and she can walk to her chair.

"She has lost none of her lucidity and intelligence. Her recovery is a great joy for us and a sign of good hope for all that are suffering in these difficult days."

She had fever and doctors gave her medicine to address it, and a GP told her mother that the coronavirus "seemed out of the question" as a possible cause.

But her condition worsened after she got home to the point that, she was struggling to breathe.

Her mother, a Ghanaian, phoned for an ambulance, but a language barrier meant an operator was not able to tell what she wanted.
