A pregnant nurse in UK who contracted the coronavirus died, but her baby was saved and is now in good health.

The mother underwent an emergency cesarean operation as soon as she was admitted at the hospital.
According to Independent, Agyapong had no serious health conditions. She was working at the ward, where coronavirus patients were being treated.
As per ABS-CBN, it was not yet clear whether the baby or the husband of Agyapong tested positive.
