Soon after, she was quickly quarantined. Mrs. André had no symptoms during the entire period of being infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Even she insisted that she didn't know she was having COVID-19.

When interviewed by French television station BFM TV if she was worried, Mrs. André said she was not afraid because she simply had no fear of death.

David Tavella, a spokesperson for the Sainte Catherine Labouré nursing home, where Mrs. André lives, said her body was doing great in fighting back to the disease.
