As the coronavirus pandemic continues to threaten the way of life humans are used to, everyone is forced to adjust, and improvise where possible. To curb the spread of the highly contagious disease, family members and friends are forced to distance themselves as much as they can.

However, this New York family isn’t letting coronavirus stop them from being there for each other. A video of the family celebrating the 95th birthday of their matriarch went viral on Thursday.

In it, the family members can be seen standing outside their granny’s home, keeping a safe distance between her and themselves while they felicitate with her.

The family members came bearing balloons and wearing party hats, while holding cardboards that seemed to spell ”Happy Birthday.” In the video, the grandma can be heard saying appreciative words to her folks. She said

"Oh, I love it. Thank you. I'm sorry we all couldn't be together, but you are all together."

It is very wise to protect the elderly, who are likely to have a weakened immune system as much as possible. There have been at least 1871 cases of the virus in New York alone.
