A 101-year-old man has been discharged from hospital after recovering from coronavirus.

Keith Watson, from Worcestershire, was admitted for surgery after a fall but developed a high temperature and tested positive for Covid-19.

His daughter-in-law Jo Watson, said he is "amazing for his age" but "bemused" by the reaction to his recovery.

She said following a Facebook post from Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, "it's all gone a bit mad".

The post has in excess of 500 comments and has been shared more than 3,000 times.

"He was showing signs of a temperature and so the hospital took all the precautions, tested him and he came back positive.

Mrs Watson said her father-in-law had gone back to his care home and is "complaining about the pain in his leg", but "not anything else".

"Having gone in for the operation is one thing and then when we learnt he was tested positive we were thinking the worst... but he's amazing for his age".
