Coronavirus: Doctor Dies One Day Before Seeing Her Family

CHINA — After returning from the frontline of the Coronavirus outbreak in Hubei province, a Chinese doctor tragically passed away before she was reunited with her family.

According to a report on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo, Dr. Zhang Jingjing spent a total of two months in the city of Huanggang before returning to Shandong province on the 21st of March.

She was then put into a 14-day isolation period upon her arrival back.

However, on April 5th, just one day away before being allowed home, Zhang suffered a fatal heart attack; efforts to save her proved unsuccessful and she was declared dead on Monday evening.

The report claims that she leaves behind a 5-year-old daughter and a husband, who is working in Africa and hasn't been able to fly home.

Zhang, who was only in her mid-thirties tested negative three times for COVID-19; therefore it's not currently clear what caused her cardiac arrest.

A number of doctors in China did die from exhaustion alone, after working for weeks straight combatting the outbreak.

One such doctor was a 51-year-old woman who died after working 18 days straight in February; she was posthumously labeled a "role model for other medics" by provincial officials a label that surely pressures doctors to work to exhaustion and to death.
