A 99-year-old has made a remarkable recovery from coronavirus after being admitted to hospital three weeks ago. Carrie Pollock is believed to be the oldest person in the UK to recover from Covid-19. She paid tribute to the ‘wonderful’ medical staff at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Hampshire, where she was admitted in early March after getting hallucinations, a water infection and suspected pneumonia. Carrie used to work as a special branch police officer in Kenya. She said: ‘I had malaria twice while I was in Africa and that was probably a little worse than coronavirus.”
Captain Tom Moore is also 99 and is doing laps of his garden with his daughter Hannah to try and raise half a million pounds for the NHS. Piers Morgan makes a generous donation of £10,000 to encourage others to donate whatever they can.
