106-year-old Zélia de Carvalho Morley from Brazil has recently got Coronavirus Vaccine. He is one of the thousands of Brazilians who were vaccinated on Wednesday. However, very few people like Zelia are in this world, who have become witnesses of an epidemic for the second time. She has also faced another epidemic like the Corona virus earlier, which engulfed the entire world including her country nearly a century ago.
Jallia was born in the year 1914 in Rio de Janeiro. This is in the year 1918-1920, when the Spanish flu caught the whole world. At that time there was no vaccine to prevent this disease. Zelia says, “The whole of Brazil was hit by it.” Many people were killed. I can’t forget that. ‘ With her lovely smile, Jalea told the Associate Press, ‘I think the vaccine is going to be much better. It is all in the hands of God.
The elderly are being vaccinated
In many countries of the world, including Brazil, the vaccine has been applied to the elderly people of the age of 100 years. Immunization campaign has started in Brazil on Tuesday. Here, the vaccine developed by the Chinese company Sinovec has been installed. More than 210,000 people have died due to Corona virus infection in this country. This country is the third most affected country in the world due to infection. Jallia’s doctor Paulo Cesar Coonha Fabiano says that Jalea has told him that about 100 years ago, his parents had also suffered from the flu.
There was no medicine at the time of Spanish flu
The doctor says, ‘When she (Jailia) was 6 to 7 years old, her father told her that people are dying in the streets. At that time there were neither any antibiotics nor any medicine. People were dying like flies. Where Jallia lives, many people have also been hit by Kovid-19. However, the concern of doctors is still increased regarding the elderly. Jailia’s doctor says, “Now we are going to get some peace.” Now we doctors will not worry that the elderly will get infected by the virus. He also told that he has lost many of his friends and colleagues in recent months due to the virus.
