Elderly people are at higher risk of getting serious health complications from Covid-19 and the death rate amongst older age groups is much higher across the world.
However, some elderly people have managed to beat the virus, which has caused over half a million deaths worldwide.
On Tuesday, a social media user, @callmethaboo, shared a photo of an 82-year-old lady who contracted Covid-19 but managed to beat it.
The photo shows an unidentified gogo holding a sign that reads:
"I beat coronavirus at 82."

He captioned the post:
"She definitely deserves all the love she can get. What a strong woman. RT for love."
Take a look at the post below:
Social media users were in awe of the strong gogo and they were happy to hear she managed to beat the coronavirus.
Twitter user, @Stanza_051, commented:
"She's a true representation of imbokodo."
Another tweep, @lupfumo_Rams, added:
"It was not yet her time, may she see many more years to come."
However, not everyone has been as lucky as the elderly lady. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that a local couple, who had been married for 45 years, left their family heartbroken when they both passed away only days apart from Covid-19.
Neville Herold died on the day his wife was buried and his daughter wrote a heartbreaking message on social media.
"Daddy you missed Mommy so much that you couldn't wait to be with her," she said, adding: "Daddy you left me too soon after Mommy, you didn't give me a chance to mourn Mom and you didn't allow me to say bye to you. But, I do understand your better half was no longer around."
