A 32-year-old mother died in mid-August in a hospital in Texas, days after giving birth to her second child, reports CNN.
Paige Ruiz had tested positive for Covid-19 when she was nine months pregnant.
She did not want to be vaccinated because she was afraid of the consequences of the vaccine on her baby.
On August 15, she passed away a few days after giving birth to her second daughter named Celeste. She was unable to hug her right after giving birth due to her contagiousness.
“She believed there was not enough information or data to say that she could confidently get the vaccine without harming the baby,” Paige Ruiz’s mother told CNN.
