“I have been communicating with one of the children since their mother tested positive for coronavirus.
“About four days ago, the daughter called me to say their mother was seriously down with the virus
and she was on admission at the hospital and had a 50:50 chance of survival. “Then, the daughter called later on Monday and told me we lost her.
“She was not in the hospital for long. The way the virus is infecting people in Europe is very serious.
The medical facilities are there but they couldn’t save her.
“When I spoke with the husband over the phone, he was still perplexed because everything happened so suddenly
and he and the children did not expect that she was not going to be back home from the hospital.”
