A man from Arges county has lost both his wife and daughter in just one week, after all three of them had got infected with coronavirus. Digi24 reports that the 21-year-old daughter has died at Pitesti County Hospital on Monday one week after her mother had died.

She came out positive for Covid the next day, but she was recommended treatment at home but her condition got worse. She arrived at the county hospital on July 26 from the municipal hospital of Campulung. She arrived in Pitesti while she was conscious, but several hours later she ended up intubated in intensive care and died on July 27.
All this time, the father was waiting in the hospital’s courtyard asking to be tested as well, but it was only today that he was tested.
