As more and more people are testing positive for COVID-19, there are also a number of people who are recovering from it as well, including a person who doctors say, shouldn’t have.

All signs point to Aba Tilahun being at risk for not recovering from the disease: he was way over the age of 65 and had pre-existing conditions. Tilahun, who is officially 114-years-old, first tested positive for the virus when a random screening process took place in his neighborhood, and was admitted to hospital before the symptoms showed, Dr Hiluf Abate told the BBC.

This allowed the medical team to be pro-active with its treatment and closely monitor the old man, he added.
