A 32-year-old pregnant woman who was infected with the coronavirus has died at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem. Efforts to deliver the fetus were also unsuccessful, and the child died.
The young woman, who was 30 weeks’ pregnant, was hospitalized due to respiratory distress in the intensive care unit for coronavirus patients last Tuesday. Her condition began to deteriorate last night. She was attached to a heart-lung machine, and despite efforts to resuscitate her, passed away. A caesarean section was conducted in an attempt to save her unborn child, but the child died as well.
