A 104-year-old Colombian woman received applause from a Colombian hospital staff, after recovering from the Corona virus for the second time in less than a year.
Carmen Hernandez received a standing ovation from doctors as they lined the corridors of the San Rafael de Tonga University Hospital in Tonga while being transferred out of the hospital, according to the Daily Mail.
As she made her way outside, dozens of staff wearing personal protective equipment continued to applaud as Hernandez was discharged from hospital after 21 days of treatment.
Hernandez was diagnosed with the Coronavirus for the first time in June of last year, and was treated in the nursing home in San Jose where she had lived for 25 years.
And Hernandez was able to overcome the virus, before she was diagnosed with it again last March.
Hernandez was transferred to the intensive care unit of San Rafael de Tonga University Hospital, where doctors and nurses were treating her, before she was discharged from the hospital, where she was transferred to her care home after she overcame the virus for the second time.
“She is an elderly patient with excellent physical ability as she fights the virus for the second time,” Gina Gomez, a health worker at a nursing home in San Jose, told local reporters.
It is reported that Hernandez was born in Tonga on July 14, 1916, and has a daughter, who is about 70 years old.
