A 103-year-old old woman recovered from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and decided to celebrate with a cold beer – her favorite drink.
CNN reported that the family of the 103-year-old Massachusetts woman, Jennie Stejna celebrated her recovery from coronavirus (COVID-19) with her favourite beer served cold.
The woman identified as Jennie Stejna tested positive for coronavirus in late April and her family began preparing for the worst, granddaughter Shelley Gunn said.
Gunn added that at a point they called her to say their goodbyes after the medical team informed the family that Stejna had stopped eating and drinking and might not make it through the night.
On May 8, Stejna’s nursing home, called her family to reveal that she had tested negative, and was symptom-free, the family said.
“The nurses came into her room, and she said, “I’m not sick anymore, Get the hell out,'” Gunn said.
Stejna was treated to her favourite drink, a cold beer by the nursing home staff.
“I think it’s given everyone a smile and some hope, while it’s dark days for everybody,” Gunn said.
