This breaks the record and replaces Zanusso as the oldest recovered person in the world. This is reported by the Dutch newspaper AD. Cornelia Ras fell ill with the virus on March 17, one day after her 107th birthday. This was after she and other residents of her nursing home attended a service on Goeree-Overflakkee, an island in the southwest of the country.
Infection center worship
Ras and 40 other worshipers subsequently became infected with the virus. Twelve of the group have died in the meantime, but the 107-year-old has declared war on lung disease – with success! On Monday, the doctors informed her that she had defeated the infection.
“We didn’t expect that she would survive,” her niece Maaike de Groot told the newspaper. She doesn’t take medication, is still going well, and kneels down every night to thank the Lord. “It looks like she will continue to do so,” says niece Maaike. (dzc)
