Couple die of COVID and leave behind 5 kids, including newborn daughter

Daniel Macias wanted to wait until he and his wife, Davy Macias, recovered from the coronavirus before naming their newborn daughter. But about a week after giving birth, the mother died of COVID-19 complications. And nearly two weeks after she died, so did her husband.

Davy Macias was 37, and Daniel Macias was 39, Terri Serey, Davy Macias' sister-in-law, told NBC News on Monday. The couple, both of Yucaipa, California, left behind five children, ages 7, 5, 3, 2 and 3 weeks.

“They were the kindest, most amazing people,” Serey said. “They were the ones who got everyone together — for every birthday, every holiday.”

The two are among more than 660,000 people in the U.S. who have died of the coronavirus. Davy Macias was unvaccinated because she was pregnant, Serey said, but it was unclear if Daniel was vaccinated.

1. The number of kids left orphaned by this panemic has got to be well into the thousands by now.

The sad thing is that there was likely no reason for her not to get vaccinated. Pregnant women, for the most part, are being encouraged to get vaccinated.

2. She was a nurse

You'd think she would've known better. I feel so sorry for the kids.

5. The safety of the vaccines during pregnancy has been an established fact for a while...

I think "the kindest, most amazing people" are those who do everything they can to make sure their kids don't end up orphaned.

6. Heartbreaking.

Davy Macias was 32 weeks pregnant and “optimistic” about her recovery when she was hospitalized in the first weekend of August, Serey said. But, she said, the expecting mother was intubated and never met her daughter when she gave birth via Cesarean section on Aug. 18. Daniel Macias only met his fifth child briefly before he was intubated about three days after her birth. Their now 3-week-old daughter remains unnamed.
