The oldest woman in Europe Andre has recovered from COVID-19 in time for her 117th birthday this week, 


Sister André, a French nun who was born in 1904, tested positive for the coronavirus on the 16th of January at a nursing home in Toulon, France, Reuters reported. Irrespective of the greater risk that an old woman would encounter than a younger person developing severe COVID-19 due to her age, she did not show any symptoms. 


When Andre was tested positive for the virus, she was not afraid.


In a study of seven supercentenarians, researchers discovered that a large proportion of their immune cells were made up of a rare type of T helper cell that can attack and kill other cells,while only 2.8% of T helper cells in young people had this ability, in supercentenarians, that number was 25%, according to the study, which was published on the 12th of November 2020, in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Still, the results can’ not say for sure whether these cells fortunate André beat the virus.

In the Sainte-Catherine Labouré where André lives, 81 of the 88 residents tested positive for the virus and 10 have died, according to Var-Matin. Fortunately  André was one of the lucky ones to be cured of Coronavirus. Andre is very calm, and she is looking forward to celebrating her 117th birthday on Thursday [Feb. 11],


André, was born on Feb. 11, 1904, Andre is  the world's second oldest person alive today after Kane Tanaka who turned 118 on Jan. 2, according to the Gerontology Research Group. How did she live so long and survive an infection is just a fortunate circumstance. Old men and women who are 110 years old or older, may have higher resisting immune cell in their blood that might protect them from viruses and tumors.  


For healthy people, the flu is an uncomfortable but short-term illness that resolves itself as the immune system prevent it . Signs and symptoms normally appear from one to four days after a contact with the virus, and they last in the body system for five to seven days.
