The virus which was discovered on January 7, was said to have no cure until Tuesday, January 28 when the video of the unnamed 87-year-old woman surfaced.

The cheery news came in after the novel virus has been reported to have affected about 4,583 people around the world including one case in Africa— Ivory Coast.

It’s about 21 days that the first case of the virus was reported and has ravaged cities of the world. It is reported that the death toll from the virus has reached 106 globally.

The Chinese government has since been making necessary arrangements to contain the large scale outbreak of the virus.
