Highlander – the Immortal (!), this is the new nickname of Italica Grondona after she beat the Coronavirus following 20 days’ battle. Italica was admitted with mild heart failure at the beginning of March to San Martino hospital in Genova (Italy).
Her doctor, Vera Sicbaldi told the CNN: “She only had some mild coronavirus symptoms, so we tested her and she was positive, but we did very little, she recovered on her own.”
Her nephew, Renato Villa Grondona maintains that it’s her lifestyle that made her beat the virus as she is a rather active woman. Talking to CNN he commented: “I don’t know what her secret is, but I know she is a free and independent woman.”
