Areema, who died on Friday, was first tested positive for the virus after developing dizzying temperatures, body aches and cough.

The nurse, who has no underlying health conditions and has worked for the NHS for 16 years, was put on a ventilator but died.

Areema’s sister Ash, 31, told the Sun, “We are upset. We’re all just broken – we just don’t have words. Areema was on a respirator and just before her death, her husband said “don’t worry about the kids”.

‘She started to cry. Doctors told him not to hug her because of the virus, but he said he should. Then she died. We are all absolutely devastated. “
