Mumbai : A 107-year-old woman in central Maharashtra's Jalna district, near Aurangabad, has successfully beaten the coronavirus. Interstingly, she survived despite the fact that she had gone under a spine surgery 10 days back.

"She had recently undergone a spine surgery and when she tested positive for the virus, her age was a major challenge in her recovery," district civil surgeon Archana Bhosale told PTI.

The coronavirus is believed to have impacted the old people the most.

However, this centenarian is not the only senior member of her family to have overcome the odds posed by the highly contagious virus. Her daughter, 78, and son, 65, had also tested positive, as had her two grandchildren, aged 27 and 17.

All of the family members have been discharged from the hospital. They were admitted on August 11.

"We had lost all hope. We survived because of the dedication shown by the medical staff...it is nothing short of a miracle," the centenarian woman's son said before heading home.

Maharashtra continues to be on the top of the list with most number of coronavirus cases.
