She questioned whether it would be possible to contain the virus in Ireland.
"It's obvious that it's only a matter of time before someone in Ireland becomes infected," she said. "I'd rather be in Tenerife if this breaks out than at home.
"With the way the Irish health system is, I don't think they'll be able to contain it."
The 25-year-old said she and the family will be taking as many precautions as they can.
"If things get worse then we'll just stay in our apartment. It's the same thing as getting pneumonia. We're just going to take as many precautions as possible and disinfect our hands as much as we can."
Mia is looking forward to the future and feels her son will have a better life in Tenerife.
"I've always loved Ireland but I know that Levi will have a better life where we're going," she said. "Instead of staying in to play playstation while it's raining he will be able to go to the beach or go swimming in the pool.
"Ross and I have spent 12 weeks learning the language in UCC and we really feel like this is the right time to go."
