Born in 1907, Maria Branias survived the Spanish Flu epidemic and the Civil War.
In Spain, the country’s oldest woman, 113-year-old Maria Branias, has been cured of the coronavirus, as reported by her relatives on Twitter.
A woman has lived in a nursing home in the province of Girona (autonomous community of Catalonia) for the past twenty years. She was found to have coronavirus in April, and in early May, doctors confirmed that she recovered.
During the illness, Maria was in isolation in her room, constantly talking on the phone with relatives.
In the same nursing home, several guests died from COVID.
Since 2019, Branias is considered the oldest resident of Spain. She was born in 1907 in a family of Spanish immigrants in the American San Francisco. After some time, the family returned to Spain. In 1931, she married a doctor, she has three children, eleven grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren. During her life, Maria survived the epidemic of “Spanish influenza” in 1918 and the Civil War (1936-1939).
Recall that in Italy, a 104-year-old woman became the oldest person to recover from coronavirus.
It was previously reported that in Iran, a 103-year-old woman was cured of coronavirus.
