Rek and his father, who are both fully vaccinated, caught COVID over Christmas, but his mother chose to expose herself to the virus.

"She should have isolated for a week because we tested positive. But she was with us the whole time," he said.

Two days before her death, Horka wrote that she was recovering on social media.

"Now there will be theatre, sauna, a concert," she wrote.

Gone in 10 minutes

On Sunday, January 16, the day she died, she said she was feeling better and dressed to go for a walk. However, her back started hurting, so she went to rest in her bedroom.

"In about 10 minutes it was all over. She choked to death,” her son said.

Rek said his mother believed conspiracy theories surrounding the vaccine, and trying to convince her otherwise got her emotional.

"Her philosophy was that she was more okay with the idea of catching COVID than getting vaccinated," he said.

Rek further said that he wants to use his mother’s case to convince other people across the world to get vaccinated.

"If you have living examples from real life, it's more powerful than just graphs and numbers. You can't really sympathise with numbers," he said.
