"The patient has a very good general condition for old age, so that her immune system could successfully fight the virus with our support," explained chief physician Harald Pannewitz.
A few days ago, a 97-year-old woman from Brandenburg, who had been infected with the corona virus, was discharged from a Berlin clinic. The woman from Bern had been taken to hospital on suspicion of a stroke. The 106-year-old was also reported to have been admitted to the Oranienburg clinic because of abdominal cramps and diarrhea, but did not have any significant respiratory problems. However, a test confirmed Covid-19 disease. The patient was immediately placed in isolation.
One name was not given at the patient's request. The woman is one of the elders who recovered from Covid 19 disease in the Oberhavel Hospitals, it was said. The clinic's internal department is pleased about the success of the treatment. "The staff of the entire department, but especially on the Covid-19 ward, have been working under difficult conditions for many months," said Pannwitz. However, they handled it professionally and calmly.
