In Yekaterinburg, a 103-year-old woman who survived the Spanish flu epidemic was cured of coronavirus from the coronavirus. Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region Yevgeny Kuyvashev wrote about this in his Instagram account.
He noted that an elderly Russian woman spent two days in intensive care. “Today she is healthy and goes home – largely thanks to the attending physician Maria Olegovna Roshchina and the head of the department, Sergei Viktorovich Shabanov,” said Kuyvashev. He noted that Isakova, who had recovered from COVID-19, was a chemist by training. The woman worked on compositions for processing sheepskin coats, boots, front covers. After the war, she ended up in a research institute.
Isakova was born at a time when there was an epidemic of Spanish flu in the world, the governor specified.
Earlier, Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said that just over half of the elderly Russians were vaccinated against COVID-19. She recalled that elderly citizens are the main risk group for the course and development of complications in coronavirus.
