A 103-year-old American woman has recovered from Covid-19, beating the bug proven to be deadly to persons her age.
Jennie Stejna, of Wilbraham, Massachusetts, contracted coronavirus earlier this month, but has since made a full recovery, she thereafter marked her return to health by popping open a cold beer.
Her family shared a video of the “hardcore” baseball fan, who lives in an old age home, drinking her favourite brew, a Bud Light, to celebrate.
Ms Stejna, who was born in Poland before moving to the States, had been the first person to contract the virus in her nursing home.
The great-great-grandmother of three is a widow – her husband Teddy died in 1992 at the age of 82 – and she had told relatives she was ready to “go to heaven”.
Massachusetts has seen nearly 7,000 deaths from the virus.
