A 94-year-old woman, who was undergoing treatment for COVID-19 at Gandhi Hospital, was discharged on Monday after recovering.

P. Vijayalakshmi from Hyderabad is presumed to be the oldest COVID-19 patient in the State to have recovered. However, officials said they can confirm the same only after cross-checking records.

She was admitted to the hospital on June 17 after developing mild symptoms such as cough and fever. “Though the patient initially had mild symptoms, she recovered in a few days. However, she was kept under observation for a few more days considering her age. She was discharged on Monday,” said T. Prabhakar Reddy, nodal officer for COVID-19 at the government hospital, which is the largest COVID isolation centre in the State.
