Go live in an orphanage when I die,” a mother told her daughters before taking her last breath on Monday morning
The 43-year-old’s body was removed by rescue volunteers from a flat in Samut Prakan’s Bang Phli district, where she lived with her two daughters, aged seven and nine.
Rescue staff said the woman is believed to have suffered Covid-19 symptoms for a few days before succumbing to the virus.
Her daughters have also tested positive and were taken to the hospital for treatment. They told reporters that their mother told them to go live in an orphanage as she took her last breath.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.
HOW IT SPREADS
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales.
These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.
You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose or mouth.
