CASE PRESENTATION: A 61-year-old woman was hospitalized due to dyspnea and low blood O2 saturation and later diagnosed with COVID-19, as confirmed by PCR. The patient had a history of asthma and diabetes and used salbutamol and Atrovent spray. She also had a history of hospitalization at one month prior to the current admission. Despite all these, COVID-19was successfully managed, and she was discharged with a good clinical condition after the improvement of respiratory complications. CONCLUSION: Despite having an advanced age and underlying diseases (diabetes and asthma), the recovery of this elderly woman shows that even such patientscandefeatCOVID-19 as long as the disease is not progressed to advanced phases and appropriate therapeutic measures are taken. By reporting such cases, it is possible to give people hope and motivation and reduce their fear of the disease.
