There have been some happy stories to come out of the pandemic.

This is something you’ll definitely want to hear about.

Since the start of the year, a devastating pandemic has gripped the globe, and it is showing no signs of letting go anytime soon.

The virus, which originated in China, was quick to spread across the globe, bringing most countries to a total standstill.

As it stands, there are over twenty million cases of the virus worldwide.

At the time of writing, there have been 739, 561 recorded COVID-19 deaths.

And we can’t even begin to imagine what the families of those lost to this horrendous virus must be currently going through.

In order to avoid a second spike and, inevitably, even more deaths.

A vaccine needs to be found, and fast.

But, so far, their efforts have been to no avail.

With at least 4 in their Phase III trials.

Despite the high number of drugs being tested, none have yet proven to hold the capability to save lives.

And that’s not just here in America… it’s happening all around the world where infection rates continue to climb.

And Marianne Schwartz’s story is one of those.

And she has just become the oldest person in Victoria, Australia, to beat coronavirus.

But after a month in hospital, she was declared virus-free.

An additional pneumonia diagnosis caused her health to plummet. “She was on oxygen several times, she started to improve before feeling worse again, that is when they found out she had bacterial pneumonia,” her niece, Karin Zafir, explained.

“I’m very, very determined. I’m a survivor in many ways,” she told Sunrise.

And says coronavirus “certainly was not my most difficult challenge but it was a big challenge.”

She then migrated to Australia in 1952 – when she has lived ever since.

She was thrown a belated 98th birthday celebration before vowing to spend more time with her family.

What an inspirational lady. For another inspirational coronavirus story, scroll on…
