Sadness in Virginia of the USA on the news of the death of a 10-year-old schoolgirl who died of coronavirus complications. The girl, according to his family, was probably exposed to the virus while performing her duties at the school as a “class nurse”.
Teresa Spree, a fifth-grader at Hillpoint Elementary School, was instructed by her teacher to accompany her ailing classmates to the school nurse. According to CNN, the girl eventually began to feel unwell with a severe headache and a mysterious cough.
“One of the things she told us before she got sick was that her job was to be the ‘class nurse’ to take sick children from the class to the nurse’s office,” said her father, Jeff Spree. “And you have to understand that this was my daughter, the help of people” is “my daughter, it was a job that she may not have wanted to do,” he added.
“He paid for the fact that he wanted to take care of everyone”
The little girl’s parents believe that it was the care she wanted to give to everyone that ultimately led to her death.
She began to feel ill on September 22 and developed a fever the next day, her family said. But just four days later, on September 26, she started coughing so hard that her mother rushed her to the emergency room.
A test was done for streptococcus and COVID-19, but was sent home until the results came out, CNN reported. “Her lungs were in perfect condition. “Doctors did not seem to be worried,” said her mother, Nicole Speri.
But within a day, he stopped breathing and was taken to a local hospital before being taken to Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, where he died.
After her death, her family was notified that she was positive for the virus.
“We did what we could and now we have lost a part of our heart,” her mother wrote on Facebook. “Covid is real and he does not care who gets it.”
Responding to the parents’ allegations that Teresa was forced to become a “class nurse”, Ward said this would be a violation of school protocol and an investigation has been launched.
