Maria was diagnosed with COVID-19 after Spain went in lockdown earlier this year, which was in March.
After spending weeks in isolation, Branyas recovered and suffered only mild symptoms.
It is said that Maria has lived through the flu pandemic, which was in 1918-19, the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War, and now the novel coronavirus.
The daughter of Maria tweeted the good news and said:
Now that she is well, she is wonderful, she wants to speak, to explain, to make her reflections, it is her again.
Born in Mexico in 1907, Branyas moved to San Francisco 2 years later and arrived in the Catalan Province of Girona during World War 1 with her father, who was a Spanish journalist.
She raised her 3 children.
One of her children is 86, said BBC in a report.
The woman has 11 grandchildren, where the oldest of them is 60 years old, and has 13 great-grandchildren.
