An Italian senior called Mr.P survived 1918 flu and Covid-19 too. This 101-year-old man recovered from 1918 flu pandemic that killed around 600,000 Italians and Covid- 19 killed 3,292 italians so far. Mr.P entered last week to Infirmi Hospital in Remini, Italy after testing positive for COVID-19 and on Wednesday night, the Italian senior was discharged from the hospital, and taken home by his family.

The case of this 101-year-old man inspired the The vice Mayor of Rimini, Gloria Lisi, to provide a statement to local newspaper ReminiToday about this incredible man saying that
 “Given the progress of the virus, it could not even be called a ‘story like many’ if it were not for a detail that makes the life of the person returned to their loved ones truly extraordinary.

Mr. P., from Rimini, was born in 1919, in the midst of another tragic world pandemic. He saw everything, hunger, pain, progress, crisis and resurrections. Once over the 100-year-old barrier, fate has put this new challenge before him, invisible and terrible at the same time. Last week, Mr. P. was hospitalized at in Rimini after testing positive for COVID-19. In a few days, it became ‘history’ for doctors, nurses, and the rest of the healthcare personnel who treated him.

A hope for the future finds itself in the body of a person over a century old, as the sad chronicles of these weeks mechanically tell every day of a virus that is raging especially on the elderly.

Yet, Mr. P. made it. The family brought him home yesterday evening, to teach us that even at 101-years-old, the future has yet to be written.”
This amazing story of this 101-year-old man in resisting 2 critical pandemics like 1918 flu and coronavirus has brought faith to many patients who are currently suffering in hospitals all over the world and struggling to defeat this virus.
