A 72-year-old man who tested positive for coronavirus for 305 days straight is thought to be the world's longest ever Covid patient.

Mr Smith told the BBC how he coughed for “five hours straight, non-stop… if you can imagine the drain that puts on your body, the energy”.

His wife Lynda said there were “a lot of times we didn’t think he was going to pull through.".

The experts noted that in December 2020, a trial of daily remdesivir therapy was discontinued after 17 days as it had no effect.

It added that his health improved dramatically, and the virus was not detected in PCR tests 45 days after the combined treatment.

Mr Smith no longer tests positive some 305 days after first infection, academics have told conference officials.

But this does not necessarily mean that they will test positive for the whole length of their stay. »
