Despite not having any pre-existing medical conditions, Emma, 12, from Atlanta, is fighting to survive after getting the coronavirus
On March 15, Emma tested positive for coronavirus after being diagnosed with pneumonia. She is currently in stable condition while on a ventilator at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite Hospital.
According to family members, Emma had not traveled out of the United States prior to being diagnosed.
