London Woman Dies Of Suspected Coronavirus A Day After Being Told She Was "Not Priority"
Kayla Williams was only 36.
A Black London woman who was being treated as a suspected COVID-19 (2019 coronavirus) case has passed away at the age of 36.
In a report from The Guardian, Kayla Williams died Saturday, March 21, a day after paramedics were called to her home in south London by her husband, Fabian Williams. Williams said Kayla was suffering from a cough, high fever and had severe chest and stomach pains when he made the call.
“I called 999 because my wife was breathless, she was vomiting, and she had pains in her stomach. As I was talking to them she was getting worse and they told me to put her on the floor and to make her body flat,” Williams said.
After the paramedic carried out some tests, she reportedly told Williams that “the hospital won’t take her, she is not a priority.”
“She did not stay very long and she went outside to write her report and posted it through the door,” Williams added.
The Guardian confirmed that Kayla was being treated as a suspected COVID-19 case.
Williams said that he has not received any updates about his wife since her body was removed from their home by an undertaker.
“I have heard nothing since,” he said. “They have left me here and said I must isolate. They haven’t told me anything else. I am a diabetic. I take insulin. All I know is I am supposed to isolate. No one has mentioned her body being tested or anything.”
