"I make a wish for good health, may it never be missing. And everything should get fixed, for good," Elena said.

Alvaro Alejandre de Ona, a doctor at the hospital, said: "She is a 104-year-old patient, who lives at home, she is a survivor.

"We have had her admitted here mainly because of her age, it was something that worried us.

"We are very happy. It is always a joy to see something like this end very well."

Elena was in the COVID-19 ward at Gregorio Maranon hospital for 14 days, and is the 4,149th recovered coronavirus patient discharged from the facility.
