A 104-year-old World War II veteran living in Oregon has recovered from the novel coronavirus, making him what is believed to be the nation’s oldest survivor of the pandemic.

Family of William “Bill” Lapschies told OPB that he came down with symptoms of the virus on March 5 and was isolated in his room. On March 11, a test came back positive for COVID-19. Luckily, his doctors said he only had a mild case of coronavirus and did not develop respiratory symptoms that might have required the use of a ventilator.

The article goes on to state the following:

Lapschies, who also survived the Spanish flu, reportedly recovered from the virus this week just in time for his 104 birthday on Wednesday. Unlike his 100 birthday, which had 200 guests, his celebration this week was a bit smaller.
