A pregnant mother passed away in labor, in Whittington Hospital, Archway of North London over in the UK today, following the birth of her child, who has survived the occasion.
The mother was infected with the Coronavirus, and there is no direct observation or feasible proof to support that pulmonary complications following the infection was the direct cause of her birth. Currently, coroners are researching on her cadaver to figure out the cause and effects.
The Whittington Hospital staff is in tears and bafflement because of the death, and all is in a very gloomy mood indeed. In a statement to The Sun, one anonymous interviewee has even stretched to say:
‘Amid all the trauma being seen across maxed-out hospital wards by our NHS heroes, this tragedy has totally poleaxed staff. There is a huge sense of disbelief at the unfairness of this devastating death. Senior hospital workers were in tears. The only consolation is that the baby survived the mum’s death.’
Whittington Health NHS Trust said: ‘This case has been referred to the coroner to determine the cause of death.’
The family of the victim and the baby is also distraught, as it can be surely imagined. The baby, for the primary testing, has been confirmed negative for the virus, but it remains uncertain, bring both hope and fear to the staff and family as of now.
Whether or not COVID-19 has been the direct cause of her death, the death of the mother poses a very grim picture onto the United Kingdom and its current healthcare nightmare. Recently, the Prime Minister himself has been deferred to the intensive care unit due to complications and symptoms.
This story follows Britain’s record for having the world’s youngest patient testing positive for the virus, a young babe in England coming out of the womb with the virus. This particular case involved the mother being interred in the hospital in March, possibly getting pneumonia, but later found out to hve been the pandemic itself.
The mother and babe, both alive, is said to be being treated in different hospitals, the mother much more fatally worse off than the newborn.
The said baby is being treated in the same hospital as where it was born, while the mother was transported to a special care unit.
The pair are being treated at separate hospitals as the mother’s condition is understood to be worse than the baby’s. Medical authorities are figuring out how the transmission of the virus was possible, and if it was pre-natal or post-natal contraction of the virus. Statements from the officials read:
‘Staff in contact with both patients have been advised to self-isolate. Health officials are urgently trying to find out the circumstances behind their infections.’
