Despite her 10 surviving children being septuagenarians, Dorothy Harris, of Tumby Bay, South Australia, is not particularly worried about the coronavirus.

Still living in her own home, the 107-year-old has seen enough in the course of her life to go about her business without too much concern.

"I think about it, but what can I do about it?" Mrs Harris said.

"We've had epidemics before — we've lived and died through them, so it'll be the same this time."

Daughter Raylene Stutley, 77, said the family was not worried because there were not any cases in South Australia and none in Tumby Bay.

After a break in autumn, Mrs Harris, who was born in 1913, has now resumed attending church and her seniors group every week, although these activities may not be quite as thrilling as the way she celebrated her 100th birthday.

Airborne with an icon

Upon turning 100, Mrs Harris jumped on a plane and flew to the South Pole for the third time.

"The hostesses made her a cake and moved us to first class," her eldest child, 86-year-old Leon, said.

Mrs Harris was 14 when the pioneering aviator landed in her birthplace, Cowell, on the Eyre Peninsula in 1927.

"I said to my mother, 'I'd go fly with him,'" she said.
