Now Her Mom Regrets Being Anti-Vaxx
She Should Have Listened to Dr. Fauci
GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas — Health officials in Galveston County reported Thursday that a child, Kali Cook, has died from COVID-19. The 4-year-old girl is the first pediatric death from COVID in the county, Galveston County Health District officials said.
“I ended up getting COVID and was diagnosed on Monday,” her mother Karra Harwood said. “I came home and was isolated. I tried to stay away from her and didn’t want her and my other kids to get it.”
Within a day of Kali Cook showing symptoms of the virus, she died Tuesday in her sleep at her home, according to media reports. She became the youngest COVID death in Galveston County since the pandemic began in March 2020, according to KPRC.
Her mother, Karra Harwood, was unvaccinated against the virus that has killed nearly 60,000 Texans.
“I was one of the people that was anti, I was against it,” she told The Daily News in Galveston. “Now, I wish I never was.”
Health officials said they didn’t believe the girl was infected at her school. Contact tracing performed by the health district showed that no students or adults who were in close contact with her had tested positive for the virus, Keiser said.
