London, UK — Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong, a 28-year old pregnant nurse from London, has sadly died of COVID-19 after giving birth. However, her baby has reportedly survived and has been doing “very well” after being delivered via emergency cesarean section.

Agyapong, who worked as a nurse at Luton and Dunstable University Hospital for 5 years, was admitted to the hospital two days after she tested positive of the coronavirus according to CNN.

Her husband is currently in self-quarantine, awaiting results for his COVID-19 test.

David Carter, CEO of Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said Agyapong 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.”
