As the highly dangerous Delta variety spreads, a 25-year-old mother of three small children died after contracting COVID. Her family has advised young people to get vaccinated against the virus.

MK Citizen, a local newspaper, said that a certain Danni Coombs, from Milton Keynes, England, died just days before her 26th birthday in July after contracting COVID.

According to the family, the mother of three children had not yet received her immunization because she was apprehensive about the shot and had been busy caring for her children. At the same time, her husband went to work as an electrician.

After getting the virus, Coombs became quite ill, and her oxygen levels began to plummet and forced her to be sent to Milton Keynes Hospital and placed on a ventilator.

Her relatives were at a loss of words upon hearing the sad news. "Even when she became so unwell that she went to hospital, everyone still thought she was young enough and strong enough to pull through," her aunt said.

Physicians told the 25-year-old’s family that she might not survive after she contracted sepsis. She passed away on July 15, just a few days after being admitted to the hospital.

"Even when she became so unwell that she went to hospital, everyone still thought she was young enough and strong enough to pull through," her aunt said.

Coombs is survived by three children: two 4-year-old daughters and a 2-year-old son who was just diagnosed with autism and ADHD. Adam, her fiancé, also survives her.

The number of new COVID cases in the United Kingdom has been declining for more than a week, surprise many after lockdown limitations were removed on July 19.

According to the BBC, the uptake of COVID vaccines has decreased in recent months, with barely two-thirds of people aged 18-29 coming forward for a shot despite being offered it since mid-June.

Coombs' family stated she had a medical problem that occasionally interfered with her everyday life. They felt she should have been brought up for her vaccination sooner.

"If she'd had an official call she would have gone to get the jab a long time ago. But she didn't and, like many people, she kept putting it off because she was busy with other things."

Coombs' family is now hopeful that her death will help spread the word to young people about the importance of getting their COVID shots as soon as possible.

"The message Danni would want is to get across, loud and clear, is that people should not delay getting their COVID vaccinations like she did," Kelly Coombs said.

"If Danni had been vaccinated, she probably may have still caught COVID. But she would not have got it so badly that it cost her life. We're hoping her sad story will help save other lives," she added.
