French nun Lucile Randon has overcome coronavirus in the time to celebrate her 117th birthday.

Either it be the power of prayer and her faith or her immunity, she has defeated the coronavirus at the age of 116.

Randon is the second oldest person in the world, according to the Gerontology Research Group, which validates details of people believed to be aged 110 or older.

French media reports say she was tested positive for the coronavirus in mid-January at the  French city of Toulon. She was tested negative after three weeks of being tested positive.

She is turning 117 years and looks healthy to celebrate her birthday, which is on the coming Thursday.

Sister Andre, who is blind and uses a wheelchair was not even worried when she heard the news of the diagnostics.

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

"For example, she wanted to know if meal or bedtime schedules would change. She showed no fear of the disease. On the other hand, she was very concerned about the other residents," he added.
