Doctors at a British hospital were able to save the fetus of a nurse who was pregnant and died after contracting the Covid-19 virus.
Nurse Marie Aguaa Agyapong, 28, was working at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, where she died.
A hospital spokeswoman said the fetus was in very good condition, but gave no further information.
Agyapong was transferred to the hospital on April 7 and a hospital examination confirmed to her that she had contracted Covid-19 virus, two days ago.
She was a wonderful nurse, and a great example of what we believe in,” said an official at the National Health Insurance Authority
He added we offer our warm condolences to the family of Mary and to her friends at this sad time.
Mary’s husband is still in a state of self-isolation and he also had a Covid-19 examination.
Mary’s colleagues praised her, on a page she established on the Internet for fundraising to help her family.
The page began to be published on Wednesday morning, and donations during these few hours amounted to 4,500 pounds.
A former colleague told Mary that she is a nurse who has dedicated her life to the National Health Insurance Authority.
Another colleague who worked with her wrote Mary was a colleague of mine, and we have worked together for several years. We should look after her family, after she devoted her life to her work as a nurse.
it is time for us to offer Mary something simple, but it is great for her family when she needs it, for her dedication and what she gave us.
