The 116-year-old Sister André, Lucille Randon, has had a coronavirus in France and has recovered. This was reported by the newspaper Var-Matin, specifying that COVID-19 was diagnosed in the woman in a nursing home in Toulon on January 16.

According to the longtime resident herself, she didn’t even realize she had contracted the coronavirus. Randon was asymptomatic, and during her period of self-isolation, she was most burdened by loneliness. According to doctors, now the life of Lucille Randon is out of danger, writes TASS. A representative of the nursing home noted that the woman “was not afraid of the disease, but worried about the other residents.”

Lucille Randon was born Feb. 11, 1904. As a young woman she worked as a governess. At 41, she became a nun and took a job at a hospital in Vichy, where she helped orphans and the elderly. In 1979 she joined a convent and in 2009 found herself in a Toulon nursing home. Randon is the oldest resident of France and Europe whose age is documented.
