A 101-year-old man helped the nurses twice as he left the hospital after beating the coronavirus.
Keith Watson was admitted to Alexandra Redditch Hospital for surgery last month and tested positive for COVID19.
But it was released on Wednesday and an article celebrating the reinstatement of the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has been shared thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter.
He said, “This is Keith, he’s 101 years old.
“He went home today after beating the coronavirus.
“Kudos to everyone in Ward 12 of Alexandra Hospital for caring for Keith so well in the past two weeks!” “
Watson’s stepdaughter Jo Watson told the BBC the reaction was “a little crazy.”
She added, “We didn’t know anything about this Facebook page until a family member brought it up and she went a little crazy.

“He was in the hospital after falling into his nursing home and needed surgery and it was a pretty big test at 101, but he got through it.
“Having an operation is one thing and then when we learned that he had tested positive, we thought the worst … but he is incredible for his age. “
99-year-old World War II veteran also defeated coronavirus and was given an honor guard by medical personnel upon discharge.
Albert Chambers, who turns 100 in July, was treated at Tickhill Road Hospital in Doncaster.
He told staff, “Thank you very much. I appreciate everything you have done for me. You couldn’t have been better. “
