- A 20-year-old mother of two who was diagnosed with the flu on Monday, died one day later.
"She checked into the hospital at 7:30 and by 3:25 she was gone", Gonzales said.
Her family is in shock, saying that Murrieta hardly ever got sick. Murrieta went home early from work on Sunday after not feeling well. "Monday she was still feeling sick, so her sister took her to urgent care, her and her kids".
Through the night, Murrieta got worse.
Doctors told her family she had the flu which turned into pneumonia.
Murrieta's condition worsened overnight and in the morning, her mother took her to the hospital. All of them were diagnosed with flu, they sent her home with flu drugs, "said the aunt of the unfortunate 20-year-old".
"Her oxygen levels were low". An x-ray revealed a bad case of pneumonia, Gonzalez told BuzzFeed News, a common bacterial infection of the lungs commonly marked by fluid build-up, according to MayoClinic.
Lubaina Himid awarded Britain's Turner Prize, oldest artist ever to win
THE victor of the Turner Prize, the oft controversial annual art award, is also its oldest to date: the artist Lubaina Himid. The prize is famous for launching the careers of Damien Hirst and other members of the "Young British Artists" generation.
Doctors tried to save Murrieta, but nothing worked.
Gonzales is still trying to come to terms with the sudden loss of her niece. They put her on a ventilator but then her heart stopped.
The flu and pneumonia have killed nearly a million people between 1999 and 2015, according to Newsweek. "It may also help prevent the disease from spreading to people who are most vulnerable".
Murrieta leaves behind her children, two-year-old AJ and 6-month-old Jr.
"Never in a million years would we have thought that we would have lost her that day like this", Gonzales said.
Because Murrieta was generally healthy and young, her family wasn't just deeply saddened, but completely caught off guard by her death.
