She had developed coronavirus symptoms, including a cough, headache and loss of taste and smell, before her condition rapidly worsened within the next few days.

Ms Naqvi was placed in the intensive care ward on her first night in the hospital and was told by the maternal critical care lead, Debbie Horner, that her baby may have to be delivered via Caesarean section and kept in an incubator.
