When coronavirus first hit the Philippines, various hospitals eventually began to report that they were understaffed as the number of infected COVID-19 patients increased in the country.
This prompted a lot of frontliners to work day and night to accommodate the patients. Volunteer nurses have also started to help local hospitals against the fight with the virus.
Following this news, KAMI learned that Laarnie Delizo, a nurse, recently shared the ordeals she faced as a pregnant nurse amid the pandemic.
Watch the video below:
In the video provided by ABS-CBN News, Laarnie shared that she continued her work as a frontliner until March despite her twin pregnancy because the hospital she was working at was understaffed.
According to Laarnie, "So kahit buntis ako, nag-duduty ako mag isa. As nurse talaga, profession mo kasi yun eh."
However, on April 18, her OB informed her that one of the twins no longer had a heartbeat, “Sabi ng OB ko kailangan na talaga tanggalin.
"Kailangan na talagang lumabas sila kahit na yung isang baby ko OK naman siya, maganda ’yung heartbeat niya pero kasi ’yung isa hindi. Bigla na lang nawala."
Laarnie's baby, Camilla, was laid to rest on April 24, Friday. Baby Bernie, the twin who survived, is currently staying at the intensive care unit of a local hospital.
The couple has also coordinated with the office of Senator Richard Gordon regarding their case.
As reported earlier by KAMI, many doctors and nurses have been infected by COVID-19 after serving as a frontliner. One of the medical workers who has been struck with the coronavirus was Doc Ted Esguerra. In his interview, Doc Ted recounted his experience with the virus.
