Inseparable mother and daughter die of coronavirus within hours of each other

A California mother and daughter known for their inseparable bond died from the coronavirus just hours apart, according to a report.

Letty Ramirez, 54, and her mom Carolina Tovar, 86, succumbed to COVID-19 on April 3 at separate hospitals in southern California, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“How ironic that you could not separate these two women in life and that fate had made it so that they wouldn’t have to be separated after death,” Art Aguilar, who was Tovar’s grandson and Ramirez’s nephew, told the paper.

Both of the women — who typically spent time together cooking watching classic Mexican movies — began having breathing trouble in mid-March, before the family brought them separately to the emergency room at St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton, according to the report.

Ramirez was admitted first to the hospital, where she was placed on a ventilator and transferred to Providence St. John’s Health Center, the newspaper reported.

But she struggled to battle the illness as she received new diagnoses of diabetes and kidney failure, the outlet reported.
