A 105-Year-Old Woman Who Survived The 1918 Flu Dies After Contracting COVID

A note from President Biden, with greetings upon her 105th birthday, is seen placed among photos of Primetta Giacopini, who died after contracting COVID-19 earlier this month.

Primetta Giacopini’s life ended the way it began — in a pandemic. “I think my mother would have been around quite a bit longer” if she hadn’t contracted COVID, her daughter says.
