The widower of a Ghanaian nurse who died of coronavirus, Kwame Boateng, has reacted to her death.
Kwame Boateng's wife, Mary Ageiwaa Agyapong, died of coronavirus in the United Kingdom.
Mary Agyapong, 28, was heavily pregnant with their second child when she was diagnosed with coronavirus and died weeks later.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh had reported that Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong tested positive for COVID-19 on April 5, 2020, and was admitted to the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, where she worked, on April 7.
She died following a successful emergency Caesarean Section to deliver and save her baby girl on Sunday, April 12, 2020.
Speaking about the death of his wife for the first time, Kwame Boateng, widower of the late Agyeiwaa, told the BBC that ''there’s no amount of words that can really explain how [he’s] feeling within.''
A visibly pained Kwame described his late wife as a ''pure soul'' and said Agyeiwaa would have loved to give the best care to her children.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that Mary’s father also died after contracting coronavirus, just days before his daughter passed.
A fundraising page has been set up in her honour. Mary’s friends and family have described her as “a blessing to everyone she came across.”
