Tragic! NHS loses nurse to coronavirus five days after her baby was delivered in emergency C-section

NHS has lost another of its heroines to the coronavirus disease after a pregnant nurse was confirmed dead five days after her baby was saved by an emergency C-section.

Mary Agyapong, 28, admitted into hospital last week Tuesday after showing signs of the killer disease and later tested positive for Covid-19.

Her condition quickly worsened and it is understood the decision to perform an emergency caesarean was made shortly after she was admitted.

She died at Luton and Dunstable Hospital on Easter Sunday.

However, it is not known if the child also has coronavirus.

Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust confirmed Mary was one of its nurses.

Chief executive David Carter said: “Mary worked here for five years and was a highly valued and loved member of our team, a fantastic nurse and a great example of what we stand for in this trust.

“She tested positive for Covid-19 after being tested on April 5 and was admitted to the hospital on April 7.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Mary’s family and friends at this sad time.”

A GoFundMe account was opened to raise money for Mary’s family afterward, so far a sum of £55,000 has been raised.
