A healthy 18-year-old model from São Paulo, Brazil has died shortly after developing blood clots, reports Brazilian news outlet G1 Globo. Valentina Boscardin, the daughter of TV presenter and businesswoman Marcia Boscardin, was hospitalized on January 6th with thrombosis (blood clots) and pneumonia.
The double-vaccinated teenager died a few days later on January 9th as a result of “COVID-19” according to Brazilian media. However, the 18-year-old was healthy and had no underlying health issues according to her mother.
Marcia revealed the tragic news of her daughter’s passing late on Sunday in an Instagram post:
“It is with great pain that I say goodbye to the love of my life. Goodbye, Valentina Boscardin Mendes, may God welcome you with open arms.
I’m floored. My daughter, I will love you forever. An angel ascends to heaven.”
Several Brazilian celebrities paid their respects to Valentina, including former model and businesswoman Helô Pinheiro, who wrote:
“I received sad news and I can’t believe it!!! My God!!! It hurts! You didn’t deserve to go through this but God is in control of everything.”
Valentina was under contract with Ford Models Brasil and had already modeled for several big brands, including Christian Dior, Givenchy, and Armani.
The 18-year-old was preparing to launch an international career and follow in her mother’s footsteps who became extremely well-known when she modeled for the same big brands and appeared on several magazine covers.
She is survived by her mother with whom she lived.
It is worth noting that those in Valentina’s age group have been nearly immune to COVID in Brazil (only 0.3% of deaths have been between the ages of 10 and 19).
Unfortunately, thrombosis is a typical consequence of COVID vaccines (she had taken two doses of the Pfizer vaccine last year).Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
