A 102-year-old woman diagnosed with COVID-19 has recovered just six days after being diagnosed with the potentially deadly virus.
Esther Marie Transue, a resident at Opis Highlands Lake Center assisted living facility in Lakeland, Florida, was suffering with a high fever.
She was rushed to her local hospital and diagnosed with COVID-19 on April 18.
Yet just six days later she tested COVID-19 negative with no major health complications, according to Good Morning America.
Esther joked her secret to a long life is “tryin’ to behave,” as per the report.
“Just keep on living,” she added. “I’m 102 years old. When the Lord’s ready for me, he’ll take me.”
Esther isn’t the only centenarian to recover from coronavirus. In Italy 104-year-old Ada Zanusso who survived the 1918 Spanish Flu, also recovered from COVID-19.
In the U.K. Connie Titchen is thought to be the oldest person in the world to beat the virus. Staff lined the corridors of Birmingham City Hospital to clap the 106-year-old as she was wheeled out following her recovery.
Please share to help recognize those that survive this terrible virus, particularly the elderly.
We will all get through this together. Stay at home and help save lives.
