Tragedy in the family of a doctor – two sons died from Covid-19

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 2,806 Covid-19 patients have died in Latvia. Two people from this statistic is a tragedy for one family.

Two brothers died from Covid-19 a few days apart in Riga, one in Stradins hospital, the other in Gailezers. They were talented programmers, but were not vaccinated because they believed that working on a computer at home protected them from the virus.

Doctors who witnessed this tragedy still cannot come to terms with the death of young people. The plot notes that the brothers’ mother is also a doctor. She herself decided to get vaccinated against Covid-19 quite recently.

«She got vaccinated a few days before she got infected“, – said the head physician of the 14th department of the Stradinia hospital, pulmonologist Zaiga Kravale.

According to her, the young people who lived with their mother were not vaccinated and their illness was very difficult. The guys believed that they were working on a computer, they did not leave the house, therefore they could not pick up the virus.

First, the mother was hospitalized, she was brought to the hospital. Stradina. Young people were treated in “Gailezers”. However, after the deterioration of the condition, one of them was transferred to the intensive care of the Stradins hospital.

According to Kravale, the mother of young people was allowed to sit at the bedside of her seriously ill son, but the first to die was her son, whose life the Gaylezers doctors fought for. According to Kravale, his mother was never able to say goodbye to him.

Then the second child also left. The woman herself was discharged only a day after the funeral of both sons.

Doctors of the Covid-19 department are confident that even in case of illness, the vaccine would prevent such a dramatic outcome.

The head of the Ministry of Health reacted to this tragedy Daniel Pavluts, who urged residents to be vaccinated to protect themselves from this.

This shouldn’t have happened. We have over 600,000 doses of vaccine in stock to prevent such a tragedy. Please get vaccinated now to (live)!
