A pregnant woman has died in a hospital in Sweden while receiving intensive care for COVID-19. The child survived through the cesarean section.

The woman was placed on a respirator with serious lung failure, Karolinska University Hospital informed in a report to the Swedish Health Inspectorate Ivo, according to the newspaper Aftonbladet.

Additional complications led to an emergency cesarean section at the same time as cardiopulmonary resuscitation was in progress, the news agency Siren writes.

According to the report, immediate measures were taken to deal with the respiratory arrest, but the patient was quickly affected by cardiac arrest.
