A mother in the Chicago area warned that her “fully healthy” teenage daughter died only three days after being hospitalized with the coronavirus and that people would stay home.
Her mother, Deborah Simental, told NBC Chicago that Sarah Simental of Tinley Park, Illinois, turned 18 last month and took all the recommended precautions.
She said: “I really don’t know how she signed the contract.” Sarah only met her immediate relatives and boyfriends, and they tested negative.
Sarah started showing symptoms on December 1
When Sarah’s left shoulder began to ache severely, they went to the hospital on the advice of the pediatrician. Three days later, on December 26, Sarah died in the University of Chicago Hospital with her parents. Deborah Simental said that she experienced a series of strokes, entered a state of cardiac arrest, and then had brain bleeding on both sides.
She said: “They tried their best, but took her away.” She added that Sarah had no underlying conditions. “A very healthy 18-year-old girl.”
“I know she works very hard, and my daughter is a fighter. But this is not enough, not enough.” She said with tears. “It took over. She took all of us away.”
Now, Deborah Simental hopes that as the COVID-19 vaccine is gradually promoted across the country, her story will become a warning story.

She said: “Please wear a mask and stay away from society.” “There will be more holidays, more birthdays…you will have them again. This takes my daughter away, and we will never have those anymore. “
“The last thing she said to me was,’Mom, that will be fine,'” Deborah Simmental said emotionally. “She told me it would be fine-it would be fine. She will always be with us and everything will be fine.”
