A young Texas doctor, 28, has died of a 'massive brain bleed' following a two month battle with COVID-19, after she became infected with the deadly virus while treating positive patients in a hospital emergency room. 

Adeline Fagan, an OB/GYN doctor originally from LaFayette, New York, died Saturday morning, hours after a nurse found her unresponsive and she was rushed for emergency surgery.

Fagan had taken a turn for the worse hours after 'doing wonderfully' in her fight against coronavirus in the days leading up to her death.  

Her devastated family announced the tragic news on a GoFundMe page set up to help pay for the doctor's medical expenses in her fight against the virus.

Fagan was in her second year of residency at a hospital in Houston, when she became sick back in July. 

The doctor, who had a history of asthma, worked in the OB/GYN unit delivering babies but was working shifts in the ER treating COVID-19 patients as the state's hospitals buckled under the weight of soaring cases and deaths.

During a 12-hour shift on July 8, Fagan began feeling 'under the weather' with flu-like symptoms, according to the GoFundMe page.

She tested positive for COVID-91 and her condition deteriorated, leading to her being hospitalized.

Fagan spent several weeks in hospital, with doctors giving her several drugs and respiratory therapies to help her overcome the virus. 

She was intubated and placed on a ventilator on August 3 as her lungs could no longer support her, the GoFundMe post read. 

The following day doctors 'took the last remaining step available' and placed Fagan on ECMO, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, to oxygenate her blood because she was 'not responding well to the ventilator'.
