Covid patient, 104, given standing ovation at hospital after beating virus twice – World News


A 104-year-old woman was given a standing ovation by hospital staff after beating Covid-19 for the second time in just under a year.

Medics lined the corridors to give Carmen Hernandez a round of applause before she was discharged from San Rafael de Tunja University Hospital in Tunja, Colombia, on Monday.

She spent 21 days in the hospital’s ICU after being admitted last month.

Ms Hernandez was filmed propped up on a trolley bed which was covered in ventilated plastic, as around a dozen staff members in PPE clapped and waved her off.

The patient was originally diagnosed with Covid in June last year before being treated at the nursing home in San Jose where she’s lived for 25 years.

She was able to beat the virus, but despite being vaccinated in February this year, Hernandez was unluckily diagnosed with Covid-19 for the second time in March.

On Monday, Ms Hernandez was taken by ambulance back to her care home.

Gina Gomez, a health care worker at the home, said: “She is an elderly patient with an excellent physical capability because she resisted the virus for the second time.

“Thank God she has done very well and has beaten this virus.”

Yamit Noé Hurtado, the director of the hospital told Caracol Radio : “Precisely because of her advanced age, for us she is a hope.

“This woman managed to come out fully recovered from the coronavirus in this first reinfection. We had to give [her] assistance in the ICU for 21 days.”

The remarkable mum, who has a daughter aged 70, has also previously beat aggressive skin cancer.
