At a time when many people may be panicky over coronavirus spread, a 101-year-old woman in Andhra Pradesh has won the battle against the disease as her doctor asserted that her willpower made her survive the health ordeal.
The centenarian has since become an inspiration for other patients infected by the dreaded virus. Her amazing recovery comes at a time when a spike in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the state has set alarm bells ringing.
Palakuri Mangamma was discharged from the Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences (SVIMS) in this temple town on Saturday. She is the oldest patient to recover from COVID-19 in the state.
