The woman was diagnosed with novel coronavirus pneumonia on Jan. 29 after her grandson had come into contact with people who had returned from Wuhan, epicenter of the epidemic in central China's Hubei province, according to Zhou Congyang, deputy director of the hospital's emergency department.

The patient met the recovery standards after treatment, Zhou said, adding that it's difficult to treat the elderly, who usually suffer from underlying diseases and are more susceptible to coronavirus infection.
