Rivas’s daughter Maria Ruelas, 35, who is engaged said that she will be taking care of her younger siblings whose ages range from 2 years old to 17 years old.

Within six days, I lost my father. And within eight hours, I lost my stepmother. And now I have five kids,” Maria said. She also shared that her stepmother was the one who was first infected with the new coronavirus.

According to Maria, her stepmother might have gotten the virus from her work, which is selling fruits. She added that despite having the symptoms Bonilla did not isolate herself until her husband got infected also.

Maria is saddened that she had no chance to see his father and bid goodbye to him for the last time. “Even though they’re deceased, the virus is still active in their bodies so you can’t touch the body. I hope this story doesn’t repeat again. It’s devastating,” she said.
