Latino mother leaves 6 children orphaned after dying of coronavirus

Brenda Martínez “She is a beautiful soul who left too soon,” summed up her cousin Darlene Tolman.

Martinez, a 43-year-old mother from Palmdale, California, died of complications from COVID-19 just days after falling ill.

Now has left six orphaned children, ranging from 2 to 19 years old, who have also tested positive by the potentially lethal virus and are kept in isolation. But their cases are mild, he said Fox News.

Martinez’s case is surprising because according to his family he wore a mask and practiced social distancing to protect herself and her children.

No one knows where he contracted the virus that caused his sudden death, according to his eldest son, José Martínez. A page has been created in GoFundMe to help children through this difficult time.

Actually California is the state with the most infections in the country: more than 682 thousand cases and 12,407 deaths. But New York is still the one with the most deaths: 32,980 among more than 461 thousand infected.
