A 102-year-old woman living in New York has contracted the coronavirus — and beaten it — twice.
Angelina Friedman, who survived the 1918 Spanish Flu and cancer, first tested positive for COVID-19 in March. During her first bout with the disease she had a relatively mild experience.
“She was never really symptomatic the first time around,” her daughter Joanne Merola told NBC. “The worst symptom she had was a fever that lasted maybe 10 days.”
Upon contracting the virus a second time in October, shortly before her birthday, she got seriously ill.
