A woman, 97, has recovered from the coronavirus after a two-week treatment, the oldest South Korean to prevail in a fight against the deadly disease.

She had been treated at Pohang Medical Center since March 13 after testing positive for the virus. Symptoms she experienced were not revealed.

The woman is in a self-isolation at home after leaving the hospital to stave off re-infection.

As of noon Thursday, 4,144 out of 9,241 people infected with the coronavirus have recovered. The oldest patient here ― on course for recovery ― is a 104-year-old woman, who is being treated at Pohang Medical Center.
