Aug. 19, 2020 -- Anna Del Priore beat the Spanish flu when she was just 6 years old. Now, more than 100 years later, she’s successfully recovered from COVID-19.
Sunrise Senior Living shared a photo on Facebook of the 107-year-old from New Jersey smiling and dancing after beating the virus.
Del Priore, a native of Brooklyn, now lives at Brighton Gardens, a part of the Sunrise group of communities, in Middletown, NJ.
“Dancing makes you feel good,” Del Priore says. ”I want to keep my health.”
Turns out, good health may be in Del Priore’s genes. The Asbury Park Press reports that her younger sister, 105-year-old Helen Guzzone, also successfully beat both COVID-19 and the Spanish flu.
