A 99-year-old Croatian woman has given doctors the thumbs up after beating coronavirus and becoming one of the oldest people on the planet to do so.

Margareta Kranjcec, who lives in an old people’s home in the city of Karlovac, was hospitalised in late October after testing positive for COVID-19.
She spent three weeks in Ogulin General Hospital before being released and says she now feels much better.
‘It’s over, I feel fine now,’ she told the Vecernji List newspaper.
Kranjcec is bedridden due to her age and fragility but has no serious health conditions and apparently only went to live in the home a few months ago.
Nothing better than reading stories about people kicking COVID’s butt, and no I’m not talking about people like you or me who statisically should be kicking COVID’s butt, but rather those like Margareta Kranjcec who aren’t really expected to handle the virus as well as someone in their 20s or 30s with no health conditions might.
Just look at this absolute legend:
Doesn’t look a day over 98, but still demolished COVID like it was just some measly, low-level flu. Are Croatian grannies just built differently or what? Either way we need more stories like this so that not everything surrounding coronavirus is doom and gloom all the time.
Speaking of which, here are some notes on the COVID vaccine via MailOnline, which is pretty informative if you’re not aware yet:
– Each person who takes the vaccine needs 2 doses: the first dose which will start to give you immunities after 12 days, and a second dose 21 days after the first dose, which will make you immune to the virus 28 days after the initial dose.
– Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca say their vaccines are about 95% effective.
– The vaccine will be distributed to those most vulnerable to the virus first, which makes all the sense in the world. Apparently 70% of any population needs to have either contracted the virus or get the vaccine for “herd immunity” to start taking place.
Obviously it’s up to you if you want to be vaccinated, but come March/April it should be available to anyone who wants it. Which means we can then completely open up our cities and countries and, most importantly, the world. Packed bars, restaurants, stadiums, shops etc. Just like in the good old days of 2019! Can’t wait.
