A resident of the English County of Surrey died after escaping from a coronavirus hospital during a COVID-19 test so as not to catch an infection and infect a six-month-old daughter. The Sun newspaper reports about it.
27-year-old David Warner came to the hospital complaining of chest pain. He was sent to the emergency room where he was tested for the new coronavirus infection. The man was scared that he would get sick with COVID-19, while waiting for the test results, and quickly left the medical center.
Warner returned home to 21-year-old partner Vicky Jones and their six-month-old daughter Evie. On January 16, the baby woke up and began to cry. Warner began to calm Evie, and after a while the man was found dead in the living room.
“The last thing he said to me was: ‘I love you, I’ll be back soon.’ When I realized that he was dead, it seemed to me that my world had collapsed, “- said Jones. According to her, the doctors wanted to keep Warner in the ward for patients with COVID-19 until the results of his analysis came, but he refused. “He said that a six-month-old baby was waiting for him at home, and he would rather endure chest pain than risk Evie’s health,” she said.
The coronavirus test result came after Warner’s death. It turned out to be negative.
Earlier, a resident of the English city of Herne Bay, Kent, reported that her father took the symptoms of COVID-19 for an upset stomach and died in his sleep. The British woman spoke about the loss to remind others of the danger of coronavirus.
