Nurse Says Teen Died from COVID-19 Because Parents Refused to Put Her on a Ventilator

A nurse recently outlined a heartbreaking experience in which a teen passed away because her parents allegedly prohibited intubation. The nurse's post quickly went viral and garnered differing opinions online. 

A 14-year-old patient lost her life to COVID-19 after her parents, who have been labeled, anti-vaxxers, prevented her from receiving life-saving ventilation. 

The nurse was outraged and expressed that she had seen multiple lives lost unnecessarily. The teen was purportedly looking forward to commencing her high school studies. The nurse added that she wanted to become a veterinarian.

THE DEATHS WERE PREVENTABLE 

The nurse who goes by the name Jessica on Twitter works for an intensive care unit. She detailed the factors that led four patients to die during a single shift. In her opinion, all of the deaths were preventable.

Jessica explained that vaccination could have resulted in milder symptoms. Her account of the "beautiful 14-year-old girl" who lost her life was an effort to dispel "anti-vaccine lies" that are being spread.

THE YOUNG GIRL WAS ROBBED 

Jessica stated that her patient's senseless death could have been avoided if her parents allowed them to place a tube down her throat. This would have assisted her breathing. 

The nurse shared that she believed the young girl was robbed of her future dreams. She also stated that a free vaccination could have changed the outcome of her COVID-19 diagnosis entirely. 

ONLINE RESPONSE

According to the nurse, the teen fought the coronavirus in the intensive care unit for nine days before she lost the battle. The Twitter thread continued by outlining similar cases.

Netizens were quick to respond to the post, with some sharing their own experiences and sad losses. With thousands of reshares and likes, many users agreed with her sentiments, but there were also hesitant and fearful people.

PEOPLE ARE HESITANT 

One person wrote: This story is heartbreaking, but I’m seeking advice too. I don’t want the school vaxing my child. Makes me feel uncomfortable as a parent ... She is already scared." 

Despite this, there were also scores of people who agreed with the nurse. Many urged fellow online community members to get vaccinated. One commenter said: "Please get vaccinated!!!" 

PARENTS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE 

Netizens condemned the girl's parents, and many stated that they should be held accountable for their daughter's death. Others expressed similar emotions as the nurse.

Someone stated: "I can't take this. I'm crying so hard. Children are innocent." Another user added that they don't understand how parents would not do everything possible to save their children's lives.

OPINIONS ON VACCINATION 

The nurse's post was a clear indication that she believed coronavirus vaccines were more beneficial than harmful because, in many cases, they prevent death. 

However, a look through the post's reactions shows that not everyone agrees, and many unvaccinated people are still on the fence when it comes to taking the jab or not.
