Explaining the reason for the c-section, an internal email to staff of the Luton and Dunstable Hospital, where the deceased worked, stated that the decision was taken after Mary’s condition worsened.

According to the NHS Trust’s Chief Executive, David Carter, the survival of her baby daughter was a “beacon of light at this very dark time”.

Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong tested positive for COVID-19 after being tested on 5th of April and was admitted to the hospital on April 7.
