A 114-year-old Ethiopian man has recovered from coronavirus, according to a Facebook post by Dr Yared Agidew, who runs the hospital in the capital, Addis Ababa, where the man was being treated.

People over the age of 80 are considered to be most vulnerable if they catch the virus.

He “is fully recovered,” Dr Yared said in his post in Amharic. “He is now in good health.

“Long life and health for our health workers!”

Ethiopia has recorded more than 5,000 cases of the virus and 75 deaths.

The country declared a state of emergency in April to help curb the spread of the virus. Businesses remain open, but schools have closed.
