“I was so sick, I thought I was going to die. But the good Lord took care of me, everybody was praying for me, and it just wasn’t my time,” Harris said.
Harris, who is affectionately called “Mawmaw” by her three grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren, was reportedly coronavirus-free on April 15.
The family expresses hope that others will survive it, too.
“If she could get through it at 103, you would feel most people can get through it if they took care of themselves and did what they’re supposed to do,” said Virginia’s son, Doug.

Across the pond, Albert Chambers contracted COVID-19 while hospitalized in Doncaster, England, for a broken wrist.

After his recovery, the nurses honored the veteran with a guard of honor.

Washington mother with coronavirus gives birth while in coma.
Angela Primachenko was 34 weeks pregnant when she agreed to go into a medically-induced coma while hospitalized for the coronavirus.
She worked as a respiratory therapist at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center, but hadn't been working when she developed the telltale symptoms of a fever and cough, according to the Washington Post.

She went into the ICU at the same hospital where she was employed on March 26. Three days later, she was put on a ventilator. Her husband agreed to induce labor at the doctors suggestion, to give Primachenko’s lungs more space and her body more nutrients.
Daughter Ava was delivered with no health issues on April 1, while Primachenko remained comatose.
After five more dark days of intubation, the mother finally recovered and was extubated.
“Everyone did a standing ovation and just clapped me out of the ICU, which was so amazing and such a huge thing to be able to leave the ICU and go to the floors,” Primachenko said. “It was just the grace of God.”
"That was emotionally unbelievable," she told CNN. "It was just crazy to have to try to understand what happened the last 10 days, having to puzzle back together your life."
Primachenko has since been released from the hospital and is self-quarantining. She is awaiting the two negative COVID-19 test results in a row that will finally allow her to meet Ava.
"[Ava] means breath of life," Primachenko said in an interview with KPTV. "And I'm like, I just really like it, I think Ava is just such a beautiful name. And we did not expect to go down this road, but sure enough she ended up being our little breath of life."
