A 3-year-old girl from Azusa was hospitalized with the corona virus after displaying flu-like symptoms, her mother said.
Aliyah Cardoza was taken to the hospital on Dec. 23, 2019, and has remained there a month later with breathing and chest tubes, according to her mother Gloria Aguilera. Doctors told Aguilera that her daughter has the NL63 strain of the Coronavirus, which is different from the one that killed 17 people and sickened hundreds in China.
Doctors are hopeful that Cardoza will make a full recovery.
