Sister André, a French nun who just turned 117, survived COVID-19 in just three weeks. “I didn’t even realize I had it,” the nun, who is blind and uses a wheelchair, told Var-Matin. According to reports, Sister André did not appear distressed by her COVID-19 diagnosis back in mid-January.
While it’s not clear which COVID-19 test she took, many experts have expressed doubt about the efficacy of SARS-CoV-2 tests like the PCR test.
She was allowed to attend mass again once the doctors confirmed that she has recovered.
Having recently celebrated her birthday on February 11, Sister André is the oldest person in Europe and the second-oldest known person on earth.
