At 102 years old, New York woman beats the coronavirus — twice

December 06, 2020

Angelina Friedman, a 102-year-old New York woman who lived through the 1918 flu pandemic and survived cancer, has now beat the coronavirus — twice, her daughter says.

The first time Friedman was diagnosed with Covid-19 was in March after she was transferred from a nursing home in Lake Mohegan, where she's a resident, to the hospital for a minor leg procedure.

Her daughter, Joanne Merola, said that the diagnosis came as a surprise because her mother wasn't sick.
