Coronavirus: 98-year-old doctor working through the lockdown

Dr Christian Chenay continues to work in a high-risk environment, despite the danger of Covid-19 for someone of his age.

France’s oldest doctor is still making weekly trips to a retirement home to provide support, and says his decision to keep working is partly down to France’s shortage of local family doctors.
