A Kerala woman from Pathanamthitta had tested positive for coronavirus nineteen successive times and has been in the hospital for the last 42 days.
As per a Hindustan Times report, the 62-year-old lady contracted COVID-19 from a family which had returned from Italy.
Although she doesn’t suffer from many health problems and is currently asymptomatic, she hasn’t been cured until now.
The lady is being treated at the Kozencherry Government Hospital after being admitted there on March 10.
However, the doctors of the hospital are now planning to transfer her to the Kottayam medical college hospital if the next result also turns positive.

Union health minister Harsh Vardhan on Tuesday launched the COVID India Seva platform aimed at providing real-time solutions to COVID-19 related queries from the public.
People can get their queries answered quite swiftly by tweeting to @CovidIndiaSeva.
Commenting on the launch of the Seva, Harsh Vardhan said, “Over time, Twitter has proved to be an essential service for both the government and citizens to interact and exchange information, especially in times of need.”
“As #IndiaFightsCorona with social distancing, we are happy to make a concerted online effort by adopting the Twitter Seva solution,” he added.
