A Saudi woman aged 106 has recovered from COVID-19 after having caught the potentially fatal disease, a health official said Tuesday.
The woman, a resident of the Saudi border city of Arar, had displayed symptoms of the new coronavirus while suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure, health spokesman in the Northern Border Province Fahd Al Anazi told Okaz newspaper.
She was transferred to hospital where she later recovered without the need to be placed on a ventilator, he added. “She has recovered and left the hospital,” Al-Anazi said. It was not clear how the woman had contracted COVID-19.
Governor of the Northern Border Region Prince Faisal Bin Khaled Bin Sultan called her and inquired after her health, Okaz said.
A total of 407 coronavirus infections and 10 related deaths have been recorded in the province.
