A woman constable died due to coronavirus in a hospital in Agra, just three days after bringing her baby girl to life. The woman constable died on Wednesday, the 7th of May, aged 27. She had been posted in the Bilhaur police station of the Kanpur district in Uttar Pradesh. She had taken maternity leave and headed to her in-law’s place in Ishwar Nagar in Agra on April 1.
She delivered her baby at the Lady Lyall Hospital on the 2nd of May. She was discharged from the hospital on the 4th of May. Her sample was collected for the coronavirus test before she left the hospital.
On the morning of Wednesday, the 7th of May, her condition began to worsen. She was unable to breathe properly and was also suffering from cold and fever.
Her family rushed her to a private hospital but they refused to admit her in there. Later that afternoon, she succumbed to coronavirus. It was just a matter of a few days that she had brought a new life in this world, and now she breathed her last. On Wednesday evening, her family was informed that her test results for COVID 19 were found to be positive.
Her husband worked in a private finance company. He left the body of his young dead wife in their car and waited for the health care officials to take away her body.
“The woman’s husband informed us about her death and the health department is now doing its work.”, said Arvind Kumar, the SHO of Sikandra.
Earlier on the 2nd of May, the father-in-law of the young constable, Randhir Singh, had breathed his last in Delhi due to liver ailment. However, his test results for COVID 19 were found to be negative.
Meanwhile, another constable, aged 57, succumbed to coronavirus in the S.N. Medical college on the 1st of May. Agra is now being regarded as the biggest hotspot for COVID 19 in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
