BACLIFF, TEXAS: 4-year-old Kali Cook of Texas died of COVID-19, likely after receiving it from her anti-vaxxer mother, Karra Harwood. Cook died in her sleep at home in Bacliff on September 7, just five hours after she first noticed symptoms of a fever. “Kali seemed fine at first, and then she vanished..” “It happened so quickly,” Karra Harwood, a grieving mother, said.
Harwood disclosed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 the day before. Harwood then revealed that she and her fiancé, William Tucker, had already lost their jobs due to illness and were quarantined at home. “I tried to avoid her because I didn’t want her or my other kids to get it,” Harwood explained. Kali, her brother, and her 5-month-old sister were all infected.
