Angela Primachenko discusses the birth of her daughter while she was in a medically induced coma.

Angela Primachenko was 27 years old, 34 weeks pregnant, and days into a fight against the coronavirus when she made the decision, with the advice of her doctors, to go into a medically induced coma. When she woke up, her belly was flat and her baby was 5 days old.

“That was emotionally unbelievable,” she told CNN. “It was just crazy to have to try to understand what happened the last 10 days, having to puzzle back together your life.”

Vancouver respiratory therapist Angela Primachenko was 33 weeks pregnant when she tested positive for Covid-19 on March 24.

Eight days later she was fighting for her life on a ventilator while in a medically induced coma.

At the same time, she gave birth to her daughter after doctors at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center induced labor to give Primachenko more of a fighting chance while also protecting her child.

“I feel like I’m a miracle walking,” Primachenko told Sheinelle Jones on TODAY Monday.

Primachenko was taken off the ventilator on April 6, and one look down at her body told her that her baby must have been born.

“Obviously nobody expected that I was going to get that sick, so no, absolutely not, I did not expect to deliver my child,” she said. “After all the medication and everything I just woke up and all of a sudden I didn’t have my belly any more. It was just extremely mind-blowing.”

Primachenko, who was released from the hospital on Saturday, has not yet been able to hold her daughter, Ava, who remains in the neonatal intensive care unit.

She has been able to see her via FaceTime, and her daughter has tested negative for COVID-19.

Primachenko said she has to have two straight tests that show she is negative for COVID-19 before she is allowed in the NICU to be with Ava.

Primachenko said she does not know how she contracted the virus, insisting that she took every precaution to guard against it, and had even stopped working in order to protect herself while pregnant.

Now at home, Primachenko has been able to hug her husband and see her 11-month-old daughter Emily while wearing a mask. 

But Ava is still in the NICU, and Primachenko can’t meet her until she tests negative for the coronavirus.

“I just want to hold her and hug her and love on her and catch up on the first few weeks I missed out on her,” said Primachenko, who also told her story to CNN affiliate KPTV.

Until then, the mother is relying on her family’s faith, as well as the prayers she received from people she knows — and many she doesn’t — to get her through this season of life.

“I believe because of the community and the people and everyone that believed in me,” she said, “God just did a miracle to have me and my baby be healthy through this.”

Stuart and Adrian Baker, a couple married for more than 51 years, recently died due to complications from COVID-19.

Before just a few weeks ago, Stuart and Adrian Baker were perfectly healthy.

The inseparable couple had been married for more than 51 years and were living in Boynton Beach, Florida, in retirement. Neither of them had any serious health conditions. Then in mid-March, they started feeling ill.

According to their son, Buddy Baker, they were in “perfect health” just a few weeks ago.

“My parents were amazing people,” he said in a widely shared video on Twitter. “They passed away six minutes apart.”

Stuart was hit harder by the virus at first, and he was admitted to a hospital intensive care unit.

Adrian, meanwhile, had been recovering at home, but her condition deteriorated when she learned her husband was in the ICU, the network reported.

When both were judged to be near death, they were moved into the same hospice room and taken off their ventilators so they could die together.

Their death was revealed by their son, Buddy Baker, a longtime NFL agent.

About four weeks ago, Stuart and Adrian went to the doctor after they weren’t feeling well, according to Baker.

They were eventually sent home.A few days later, their symptoms still hadn’t improved so their doctor recommended that they visit the hospital.

Baker said that they were also sent home from the hospital and told to self-quarantine until they felt better.

“This is pre- the world shutting down, pre- the NCAA tournament getting canceled, so you’re still not thinking this is going to be something which is life threatening,” he said.

“In loving memory of my mom and dad – please make the tough and right choice and stop the spreading of this virus,” the son said in a moving video on Twitter.

Clarence House confirmed that the 71-year-old royal had been diagnosed with the COVID-19 disease in a statement released this morning.

The heir to the throne is said to have displayed “mild symptoms” on Sunday and was then tested on Monday, with the results coming through late on Tuesday night.

Charles “otherwise remains in good health” and has been self-isolating in Scotland with the Duchess of Cornwall– who has tested negative for coronavirus.

Prince Charles is the eldest child of the Queen and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. As someone over 70, he is considered to be at higher risk than average for coronavirus.

Earlier this month, his office said he was not yet self-isolating because UK government and medical advice at the time were not advising over-70s to do so.

On March 13, Prince Charles and his wife announced they were canceling their spring tour due to the escalating coronavirus pandemic. The pair had been set to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus and Jordan.

However, Charles has also been working from home over the last few days, and has held a number of private meetings with Highgrove and Duchy of Cornwall individuals, all of whom have been made aware.

A number of household staff at Birkhall – the prince’s residence on the Balmoral estate – are now self-isolating at their own homes.

A palace source said the prince has spoken to both the Queen and his sons – the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex – and is in good spirits.

Corona Cases In The UK

The UK reported 8,077 coronavirus cases and 422 deaths.A total of 8,077 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the UK and 422 people have died, the National Health Service said on Tuesday, March 24, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a strict lockdown on the entire country.

Trump says he’ll reopen country in weeks, not months | Coronavirus Updates

Trump says he’ll reopen country in weeks, not months | Coronavirus Updates

President Donald Trump says he wants to reopen the country for business in weeks, not months, and he claimed, without evidence, that continued closures could result in more deaths than the coronavirus pandemic.

“We can’t have the cure be worse than the problem,” Trump told reporters at a press briefing, echoing a midnight Sunday tweet. “We have to open our country because that causes problems that, in my opinion, could be far bigger problems.”

If it were up to the doctors, they may say, ‘Let’s keep it shut down. Let’s shut down the entire world,'” he said, sounding exasperated.

“We can’t do that,” Mr Trump said with his arms held straight out, for effect.

Appearing to know that local and state officials would not be bound by any presidential decree to “open” up the country, he said “governors will have a lot of leeway” on they respond.

It’s a change in tone that is drawing criticism from public health experts, who suggested Trump risks making a dangerous mistake if he sets up a conflict between public health and the nation’s economic well-being, given how unlikely it is that the threat posed by the virus will subside in another week.

If the U.S. stops social distancing too soon, “you will have more deaths and more dives in the stock market,” warned Lawrence Gostin of Georgetown University, a lawyer with extensive public health expertise.

And the outbreak could come surging back once people return to their normal routines of commuting, working, dining out and socializing — further stressing the economy.

Meantime, despite his own public health team urging caution, the president continued to pitch specific medications as possible solutions to treat Coronavirus.

He again touted Chloroquine, used to treat malaria, saying without providing supporting data, that “there’s a real chance it could have a tremendous impact.” 

“It would be a gift from God,” he said, “and a real game changer.”

COVID-19 Now a Pandemic

A pandemic is a global outbreak of disease. Pandemics happen when a new virus emerges to infect people and can spread between people sustainably. Because there is little to no pre-existing immunity against the new virus, it spreads worldwide.

It is caused by a member of the coronavirus family that has never been encountered before. Like other coronaviruses, it has come from Bat.The virus that causes COVID-19 is infecting people and spreading easily from person-to-person. Cases have been detected in most countries worldwide and community spread is being detected in a growing number of countries.

Some common symptoms coronavirus

People may experience:

  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Pneumonia
  • Difficulty breathing (severe cases)

As of 15 March, more than 156,000 people have been infected in more than 80 countries, according to the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering.

There have been over 5,800 deaths globally. Just over 3,000 of those deaths have occurred in mainland China. More than 73,000 people have recovered from the coronavirus.

Why is this worse than normal influenza, and how worried are the experts?

We don’t yet know how dangerous the new coronavirus is, and we won’t know until more data comes in, but estimates have ranged from well below 1% in the young to over 3% among those who are elderly or have underlying health conditions. Seasonal flu typically has a mortality rate below 1% and is thought to cause about 400,000 deaths each year globally. Sars had a death rate of more than 10%.

Another key unknown is how contagious the coronavirus is. A crucial difference is that unlike flu, there is no vaccine for the new coronavirus, which means it is more difficult for vulnerable members of the population – elderly people or those with existing respiratory or immune problems – to protect themselves. Hand-washing and avoiding other people if you feel unwell are important. One sensible step is to get the flu vaccine, which will reduce the burden on health services if the outbreak turns into a wider epidemic.

In The US

Since the first U.S. case of the coronavirus was identified in Washington state on Jan. 21, health officials have identified thousands of cases across the United States. By March 16, the virus had expanded its presence from several isolated clusters in Washington, New York and California to 49 states and the District of Columbia. To date, there have been over 70 deaths across the country.

Also California officials announced a complete lockdown of the Bay Area, including San Francisco, that requires people to stay home except for essential needs, and the governor of Ohio is recommending postponing the state’s primary elections originally scheduled for Tuesday.

The Trump administration’s new guidelines might be inconvenient or seem like an overreaction to some, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. But he added, “They were well thought-out.”

“When you’re dealing with an emerging infectious diseases outbreak, you are always behind where you think you are, if you think that today reflects where you really are,” Fauci said.

Because of the lag in getting results that show the true spread of a disease, Fauci added, the new policies are commensurate with what is “actually going on in reality.”

Canada closes border; U.S. citizens exempted

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his country’s borders will be closed to nearly all non-Canadians, with the exception of U.S. citizens.

“We will be denying entry to Canada to people who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents,” Trudeau said at a briefing outside his house in Ottawa.

Exceptions will be made, he added, “for air crews, diplomats, immediate family members of Canadian citizens, and, at this time, U.S. citizens.”

Trudeau is currently observing a 14-day period of self-isolation, after his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, tested positive for the coronavirus.

How To Stay Safe from Corona Virus?

  • If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.
  • Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.
  • Masks are effective only when used in combination with frequent hand-cleaning with alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
  • If you wear a mask, then you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.
