Angelina Friedman is not one to shy away from a challenge, the 102-year-old New Yorker has overcome some serious challenges in her life such as cancer, internal bleeding and sepsis.
She can add beating Covid-19 to her list, twice. Her daughter, Joanne Merola, told CNN affiliate WPIX that her mom contracted the disease twice and has now tested negative for the virus.
"My invincible mother tested negative," Merola said.
The first diagnosis she received was when she was admitted to the hospital for a minor procedure administrator Amy Elba told CNN.
She had a fever and tested positive for Covid-19 and bu April she was tested again and was negative.
Then in October she became ill again in her nursing home and after being tested she was found to have contracted Covid-19 again.
It was in November that Merola learned that her mom had beaten Covid-19 again.
"She is a mover and a shaker," Elba told CNN earlier this year.
At 102, Friedman is loving life, even though she has lost most of her hearing and her eyesight is failing.
"She's not the oldest to survive Covid," Merola told WPIX, " But she may be the oldest to survive it twice."
Earlier Briefly.co.za reported that two powerful photos recently surfaced online and they reminded people of how our lives have really changed since the coronavirus pandemic.
In the pictures, a family could not hold hands but looked at each other through a glass-sealed window as a man with the Twitter handle @briannalhaynes held up his baby cousin towards his grandparents.
The coronavirus pandemic has overturned human lives and made humans restrategise the way they live. If there was ever anything people thought could not be done in a new way or postponed, the pandemic changed all of that.
In other news, the trio of former United States presidents, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W Bush, have promised to volunteer themselves to get their Covid-19 vaccines in the public to boost the public trust on the vaccine.
According to the report by CNN, the three respected former presidents said this would help in the awareness campaign on the vaccines, its safety and effectiveness to tackle the Covid-19 infection.
