Coronavirus: 'Healthy' NHS nurse, 36, dies after contracting COVID-19

A 36-year-old NHS nurse, who was believed to have no underlying health issues, has died after contracting coronavirus.

Areema Nasreen died shortly after midnight in intensive care at Walsall Manor Hospital in the West Midlands, where she had worked for 16 years.

The mother-of-three developed symptoms of coronavirus on March 13, including body aches, a high temperature and then a cough.

She had tested positive for COVID-19 a week later and a doctor at the hospital previously told Sky News her condition "deteriorated very quickly".

Her death came as officials announced 569 more people had died in the UK after contracting the disease - bringing the total number of deaths to 2,921.

Her sister Kazeema Nasreen, who works as a healthcare assistant at the same hospital, had told  that family think she could have picked it up "virtually anywhere".

The 22-year-old said her sibling was on annual leave when she first started showing symptoms and that she did not believe she contracted it at work.
