104-year-old woman beats coronavirus for second time

A 104-year-old woman in Colombia has beaten the coronavirus for the second time, USA Today reported

The woman, Carmen Hernandez, received a standing ovation from health care workers at the hospital during her discharge.

According to NBC News, Hernandez was first diagnosed with the virus in June 2020 and again last month even though she had been vaccinated by then. 


After being diagnosed the second time, Hernandez spent 21 days in the hospital’s intensive care unit before being discharged, according to WFLA

Earlier this year, two elderly women in New Jersey also beat the virus. In January, news outlets reported that 109-year-old Hilda Brown had recovered shortly before her 110th birthday. Later, 107-year-old Anna Del Priore also recovered from the coronavirus.
