A 107-year-old woman from New Jersey, who survived the Spanish Influenza, reportedly denied the odds once again by surviving the coronavirus.
Anna Del Priore was diagnosed with COVID-19 in May and recovered in June, Asbury Park Press reported.
Not only has she been hit by the virus, but she is still on her feet and continues to stay active walking and dancing, according to staff at Brighton Gardens, an assisted living facility in Middletown, NJ
“People do not trust me,” said Laura Halle, Del Priore’s healthcare coordinator at the facility. “It’s really amazing to watch her travel.”
Del Priore was born in the same year as the sinking of the Titanic, and she became infected with the Spanish Influenza during the 1918 pandemic when she was 6 years old.
Her granddaughter, Darlene Jasmine, suspects Del Priore of recovering from Spanish Flu, which is similar to COVID-19 because it also attacks the respiratory system, may have something to do with her recovery. Del Priore’s 105-year-old sister, Helen Guzzone, has also survived both illnesses.

After she became infected with COVID-19, Del Priore “had a fever, did not eat much, but she did not need a respirator” and did not have to go to the hospital.
“She’s constantly moving,” Jasmine said. “We’ve always been to Brooklyn – the grocery store, the bakery. Every night she made a home-made meal from scratch. All Mediterranean food – olive oil, vegetables, fruits, nuts. Likes like the old rustic food for which you are now charged so much. “

The high-rise living facility, which operates in Brighton Gardens, told Fox News that Del Priore and her late husband, Frank, a professional tango dancer, “wanted to dance.”
Meanwhile, Del Priore, who will turn 108 next month, says she has no plans to slow down.

“You continue to live,” she said. “Dancing makes you feel good. I want to maintain my health. “
