    She would remember the 1918 pandemic as she would have been a teenager! Now she’s survived another one.

    • Avatar Mr. viral Koala says:

      @MtGox dude chill she is negative now, if she was positive, reporter wouldn’t go near her.
      Immunity has been developed inside her because of contracting with virus and she doesn’t need a mask anymore.
      In Asia we used to have more cases than Europeans, we stop wearing mask only our 10-20% population weres mask, still all rates are very low and we have big population than you all, it’s all about immunity, stop eating junk food. Take proper diet.

    • Avatar Ben Matlock says:

      @MtGox She already recovered and was tested negative. Also she never had any symptoms.

    • Avatar Voodoo Sugar Walls says:

      Obviously isn’t a pandemic if someone this old can survive it with no symptoms

    • Avatar Ben Matlock says:

      @Voodoo Sugar Walls Is cancer also not dangerous because some centenarians can survive it? No one was claiming this virus has a death rate of 100%

    • Avatar Bob Donald says:

      @MtGox You’re a moron she doesn’t have the fake virus . Convenient how they say she has COVID knowing she can die any second. Fake news, fake virus . If the guy is concerned, then he can get out of her freaking face. You are the disgusting one and you’re obnoxious. You should go quarantine yourself to your mom’s basement without access to social media so people can be protected from your stupidity.

    “116-Year-Old French Nun, World’s Second-Oldest Person, Beats Covid Infection” thereby motivating us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to #ConvinceItForward for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more #MourningInAmerica (per #LincolnProject). Thus, we’re hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the #UKvariant strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, Californian & #Cluster5Mink mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.

    • Avatar MtGox says:

      @Bublee I understand. It’s ok. Not your fault.

    • Avatar Bublee says:

      @MtGox im still confused what this was about?

    • Avatar MtGox says:

      @Bublee Don’t worry about it. We understand. Just try to use grammar more correctly I guess? idk how else to help you people.

    • Avatar Akosi Monkey says:

      @Bublee You have your own point of view trying to apply it in general.

  11. Avatar Lisa B. says:

    God mighty hands is on this lady’s life that’s a fact. 🙏

    • Avatar Bublee says:

      I don’t think you know what a fact is. That’s faith because its what you need to accept because you can’t prove it. Don’t get offended its actually what your priests will tell you as well.

      I could easily say Cuthulu or Vishnu did this and you might get offended despite the fact I would have as much “facts” as you

    • Avatar Duwang Joestar says:

      @Bublee why can’t you just let them believe in God?

  12. Avatar Avante Lvsitania says:

    Words cannot describe the respect.

  13. Avatar Bublee says:

    Let’s be honest she probably doesn’t have a weakened immune system like other old people … something has to be keeping her alive this long and its not god.

      Alas those people who died due to covid doesnt seem to be blessed by god. 🙄

      @jayvir jadeja God hated all the people who died of covid. He only saves the ones he likes.

    • Avatar Carlos says:

      @MtGox You should think about what your saying, God love all Humans even you but it’s up to you to return or give it back to him…. God know nothing of hate… thats the Devils work….

      @Carlos !!!

    • Avatar Mr. viral Koala says:

      @MtGox why are you negatively commenting about her in every post, a know you have problem with religion or specifically Christianity

  42. Avatar robotron17 says:

    Ironically, not being scared of dying helps you to live longer.

    • Avatar Jakeornot says:

      Certainly not having that added stress helps.

    • Avatar annoyed aussie says:

      Not sure about that, stupidity kills. I know what you mean but you cover a whole category of risk takers who do die. Having a calm demeanor might be a better way to describe it.

    • Avatar MtGox says:

      @annoyed aussie Hopefully she doesn’t decide to go mountain climbing.

    • Avatar Ascent says:

      She’s probably right with her Lord and she’s probably tired. I’m in healthcare. I had a client who really became my dear friend. She passed at 94. She was a nun, a nurse and a professor (she taught nursing). She lived a life of servitude and genuinely found fulfillment in her vocation. Plus, she was tired and ready to go home. She as very much at peace with passing.

    • Avatar Carlos says:

      @Tenebris Rex like I told Eric we will all find out when its our time to go and I will gladly shake ur hands and say we made it

    • Avatar Carlos says:
