US federal inmate, 30, who gave birth while on ventilator, dies of COVID-19

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons (BOP) said, a 30-year-old woman serving a 26 month sentence for being involved in a drug-related crime, died of COVID-19 on Tuesday weeks after giving birth to her child while she was on a ventilator. At least 30 federal inmates have died since March due to COVID-19 and 1,313 inmates have tested positive, according to the BOP.

Would feel bad, but I feel worse for people who managed to not break the law and died of the virus.

Might have some sympathy for her if she hadn't been a meth dealer.

What happened to the baby? I'm not about to read all of those articles but the one I did read didn't mention it. Did it leave or was it like all the other exposed babies who had no I'll effects?

It's almost like giving birth is a severe medical incident that puts you at risk of death and illness....woah.

The ventilator probably killed her more than the virus did. It's a lack of oxygen in the blood problem, not a lack of air in the lungs. It's two different issues even if it seems similar on the surface. And giving birth probably didn't help any.

oh sure she died of covid-19. I can totally believe them. Especially since they said people who died of clear alternate causes will be added to covid-19 death total.
