102-year-old woman born during Spanish flu pandemic recovers from COVID-19

A woman who recently recovered from COVID-19 has also survived cancer, miscarriages, sepsis, and the Spanish flu.

“She has superhuman DNA,” her daughter quipped.

Angelina Friedman is quite the fighter. The 102-year-old New York woman has survived cancer, sepsis, miscarriages, and two pandemics. “She has superhuman DNA,” Joanne Merola told WPIX-TV while marveling at her mother’s endurance.

Friedman (née Sciales) was born in 1918 on a passenger ship bringing immigrants from Italy to New York City during the second wave of the Spanish flu pandemic. “Her mother died giving birth on the ship, and she was taken care of by her two sisters,” said Merola. According to the World Health Organization, the Spanish flu infected about a third of the world’s population, and roughly 50 million people died from it. Decades later, Friedman has survived a second pandemic: COVID-19. She tested positive for the virus on March 21 after she went to a hospital for a minor medical procedure. She left the hospital a week later and returned to the North Westchester Restorative Therapy and Nursing Center in Lake Mohegan.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
