BBC -The recovery from coronavirus of an Ethiopian man who is believed to be at least 100 years old was “incredible”, one of the doctors who treated him told the BBC.
Aba Tilahun Woldemichael’s family says he is 114, which would make him the world’s oldest man, but there is no birth certificate to confirm his age.
People over the age of 80 are considered to be among the most vulnerable if they catch the virus.
The centenarian, who is an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian monk, is now being looked after at home by his grandson.
“When I was in the hospital I was praying to God asking for my health. I was crying and praying for the whole country to be healthy again,” he told the BBC.
