103-year-old Gandhian back home after winning COVID battle
''I developed symptoms five days ago but there were no complications as such. Yet, I decided to get admitted because I have respiratory problems. Now, I am getting discharged,'' the centenarian told PTI on Wednesday.
According to him, he got admitted to Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research (SJICSR), a government-owned autonomous hospital.
Sources close to him said the director of the Jayadeva Institute Dr C N Manjunath, an eminent cardiologist and the son-in-law of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, personally monitored the treatment for Doreswamy.
Age did not diminish the spirit of Doreswamy as he is still an active social activist taking part in various agitations till the COVID-19 broke out.
