Europe's oldest person, French nun Lucile Randon, overcomes coronavirus in time to celebrate 117th birthday - ABC News

Whether it was the power of her prayers or her T-cells that did it, 116-year-old French nun Lucile Randon has survived COVID-19.

The nun, whose religious name is Sister André, is the second-oldest known living person in the world, according to the Gerontology Research Group, which validates details of people believed to be aged 110 or older.

French media report that the nun tested positive for the virus in mid-January in the southern French city of Toulon.

But just three weeks later she is considered recovered.

She is even healthy enough to look forward to her 117th birthday on Thursday.

"I didn't even realise I had it," the nun told French newspaper Var-Matin.

Sister André, who is blind and uses a wheelchair, did not even worry when she heard the news of the diagnosis.

"She didn't ask me about her health, but about her habits," David Tavella, the communications manager for the care home where she lives, told the paper.

"For example, she wanted to know if meal or bedtime schedules would change.

Not all the residents in the care home have shared Sister André's luck.

In January, 81 of the 88 residents tested positive and about 10 died, according to the newspaper.

The nun is now reportedly officially cured and has been allowed to attend Mass.
