In another tweet, UNM HSC thanked their community for donating iPads due to which Stella remained in contact with her family. The hospital also applauded the efforts of their health care team for working tirelessly to help patients.
The heart-warming has been viewed almost 9,000 times and receiving love from social media users. People from across the world are congratulating her and hailing it as good news across borders.
Another man pointed out how the video must be shown to COVID non-believers and think that it only affects older people.
It was also reported that Stella suffered from Asthma, which severed the symptoms of Coronavirus and it is claimed that she contracted the virus from her father, who passed away in April last year due to the complications from the COVID-19. The little girl had also suffered a collapsed lung and was in a week-long coma.
