 Nigerian nurse dies of Coronavirus in the UK after spending five weeks fighting for her life in intensive care

A Nigerian nurse has died from Coronavirus in the UK after spending five weeks fighting for her life on a ventilator in intensive care.

51-year-old Onyenachi Obasi, who worked as a health visitor and nurse reportedly died on May 6 at the Queen’s Hospital in Romford.

Ms. Obasi who had no underlying health conditions told her family that she felt she had a duty to work, and help, during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Days after caring for a COVID-19 positive patient, she fell ill before eventually being admitted to the Queen’s Hospital, where she succumbed to the disease. 

Her niece, Ijeoma Uzoukwu said: ‘We are just heartbroken. She was really loving, really sweet and a really cute person.

‘She was a good example of unconditional love and just loved everyone. She was so giving and always had an ear – she took people as they were.

‘She loved her job, but that is what caused her to fall ill in the first place.’

‘Any normal situation I would go and see her, and be by her side. But because of the lockdown, we weren’t able to do that, and that was really hard for our family,’ Ms Uzoukwu said.

According to her, Onyenachi left behind a 19-year-old son, who is vulnerable and was dependent on her.
