According to CNN, Pollack celebrated turning 103 years old on June 16, in a nursing home in Michigan, US, where she had been in isolation amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

She was reported to be very low during her stay at the nursing home and when she was discharged, the granny decided it was time she got a tattoo.

"It was exciting because years ago my grandson wanted me to get one and I would not do it. All of a sudden, I decided I would like to have one. And if I could, a frog. Because I like frogs," she laughed while speaking to CNN.
