"Don't let this be you."
This is the heartbreaking moment when a mother and her daughter, both infected with Covid-19, held hands for the final time before the mom passed away.
Anabel Sharma, 49, shared the photo where she and her mom Maria Rico, 76, held hands while wearing oxygen masks in their ICU beds. Maria died 24 hours later.
“The speed Covid ravaged through our family was frightening. Anyone can get it and it’s roulette whether you will survive.
“If anyone is thinking about breaking the rules, I’d urge them to put themselves in my shoes and think about what it might be like to watch your mom die, or be told that you might not live.”
According to Anabel, they have always been cautious since Maria lived with them. “We had food delivered and I only ever did the school run. I never thought Covid would hit us – but it did,” she explained.
“Mom was trying to talk. All I heard [was] ‘cremation’ and ‘ready to die’. I was crying but Mum was so brave,” reflected Anabel. “I asked doctors to take this picture. Then they took Mum back.”
Maria was the last member of the family to get infected with Covid-19, next to 12-year-old Isaac, Anabel’s son, who fell sick after returning to school starting September.
The rest of the family 47-year-old Bharat, Anabel’s husband, and their children Noah, 10, and Jacob, 22, have all previously contracted coronavirus.
