When a 36-year-old Pamela was diagnosed with pandemic coronavirus, her mother Zoila was devastated. The chances for Pamela to recover were a little low as she was suffering from Down syndrome which is a genetic disorder that causes abnormality in cell division. That was terrible news and her mother was depressed with it. She was concern about her daughter if she could survive or not.

“When doctors told me that Pamela had coronavirus, my legs almost fell,” she told WSVN.

When Pamela was diagnosed with coronavirus symptoms, she was admitted to Kendall Regional Hospital in Miami, Florida. Pamela’s Down syndrome doesn’t specifically put her to the risk but some other factors could increase her risk.

Shortly after Pamela was admitted to the hospital, she was intubated. The doctors told Zoila that there was no hope for Pamela to recover. Pamela’s condition was going down and doctors had put her in ICU to stabilize her case. This makes Zoila even more anxious. She can’t even think about life without her daughter.

She has a lot of of faith in God and prayed for her daughter’s life. She also mentioned that the good thing about being in that hospital is that the doctors didn’t lose hope even when they very well aware her daughter’s condition was weak due to her previous medical conditions.
