91-year-old woman from Kumligaon village in Meghalaya defeats COVID-19

A 91-year-old woman from Kumligaon village in South West Garo Hills district of Meghalaya has defeated COVID-19 after contracting the virus two weeks ago.

Anati Koch, who was already bedridden due to hip dislocation, had tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago after an ASHA worker, who was nursing her, contracted the virus. During the 10 day isolation period, she could not eat properly due to loss of smell and appetite. However, on the 11th day when she was tested, the results came out to be negative.

Eighteen other locals from Kumligaon village, who had tested positive, have also recovered.
