An NHS nurse aged 36 has died on Friday after being infected with Covid-19.
Areema Nasreen a British Pakistani nurse, mother of three, died more than two weeks after first being diagnosed with the covid-19.
When her illness was first reported on Mar 23rd, she was said to have had no underlying health issues and was described as “physicaly fit and healthy” by her family while she was on a ventilator in the hospital where she worked.
Ms Nasreen had worked for the NHS for more than 16 years.
She started at the trust as a housekeeper in 2003 before working hard to gain her nursing qualification in January 2019.
Paying tribute to the nurse, Richard Beeken, chief executive of Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, said Nasreen “was a professional, passionate nurse.”
“Her dedication to her role and her popularity among her colleagues is obvious to see with the outpouring of grief and concern we are seeing around the organization and on social media. We will do everything that we can in the coming days and weeks to support those that need it,” he added.
Beekan said Nasreen always aimed to make a difference and that she “will be very sadly missed.”
