About this Deal
Carmen Hernandez, 104, was met with a standing ovation from health care workers while being wheeled out of a Colombian hospital. The reason for the celebration? She defeated COVID-19 for a second time.
Hernandez was diagnosed with the coronavirus for the first time in June, and then again on March 8, after being vaccinated, according to NBC News.
This time, she was in the hospital for 21 days before being discharged, according to WFLA.
Hernandez isn't the only centenarian who has beat COVID-19.
In January Hilda Brown, a 109-year-old woman, recovered before her 110 birthday. And Anna Del Priore, 108, beat COVID-19 last year after surviving the Spanish flu a century earlier.
