108-Year-Old Woman Wins Battle Against Novel Coronavirus

108-year old Sylvia Goldsholl has defeated the novel coronavirus with courage and become the world’s oldest COVID-19 survivor of the country. She has lived in a nursing home in Allendale, New Jersey since 2010.

Earlier, Sylvia had survived the 1918 Spanish flu and now she won her battle against the novel coronavirus. She fought with this virus for a couple of weeks. When she was diagnosed with COVID-19 she was transferred to isolation wing of the care home.

Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy disclosed the news of her recovery. He took to Twitter and wrote: “Sylvia Goldsholl is 108 years old. Last month, she tested positive for COVID19 and has beaten it. A tremendous life, a tremendous spirit, and a tremendous show of strength. So, to you, Sylvia, we send you all our best for many more years to come.”

Sylvia was born on December 29, 1911. She was seven years old when the Spanish flu spread around the globe. Spanish flu caused the death of around 50 million people. But Sylvia won her battle at that time.

Sylvia used to live in the Bronx in New York. She spent most of her life in the apartment there. Later she moved to New Jersey. She had never tied the knot and had no children of her own.

People used to call her advocate as she always wrote the letter to government officials for the problems she cared about.
