After stuggling to get treatment, Rana Zoe Mungin, a 30-year-old teacher in New York, died of COVID-19.
She had a preexisting condition that included asthma and hypertension, putting her at high risk when she contracted the virus in March.
She had fever and shortness of breath but was turned away from the emergency room when she was told she was having a panic attack.
She was finally admitted to the hospital on March 27th, and after showing signs of improvement, died on April 27th.
Her sister had taken to Twitter to document the tragedy.
“It is with heavy heart that I have to inform you all that my sister Rana Zoe Maybe has passed away today at 12:25pm due to COVID-19 complication. She fought a long fight but her body was to weak.”
