A YOUNG black woman has died of suspected COVID-19. Kayla Williams, 36, died in her south London flat a day after calling 999 and being told to look after herself at home.
The Guardian reports that the mother of three, died on March 21, a day after paramedics were called to her home in Peckham.
Her husband, Fabian, told The Guardian: “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 het on the floor and to make her body flat.
Williams said his wife’s condition deteriorated the next day. He found her slumped head down in the lounge. “She was already dead,” he said.
He told The Guardian: “I put her on the ground – because that is what they had told me to do before – and I rang 999 again and they told me to put my hand on her chest and pump her chest.”
