Aimee O'Rourke, 39, passed away last night at the QEQM Hospital in Margate, Kent, following the surfacing of symptoms two weeks ago.

Ms O'Rourke had three daughters, Maddie, Mollie and Meghan, who described her mother as an 'angel' who will 'wear [her] NHS crown forever more'.

Just hours later, Areema Nasreen, 36, died shortly after midnight in intensive care at Walsall Manor Hospital, West Midlands, were she had worked.

The NHS employee of 16 years, who started in housekeeping before training as a nurse, was diagnosed with the infection in late March after developing a soaring temperature, body aches and a cough.

Both nurses were put on ventilators but sadly could not be saved, taking the toll of health workers to die with the virus during the pandemic to seven.

Loved ones of Ms Nasreen and Ms O'Rourke begged the public to take the virus seriously in an urgent wake-up call to those flouting social distancing rules.

Rubi Aktar, a nurse at the hospital, paid tribute to her 'best friend', who she described as the 'most loveliest, genuine person you could ever meet'.

In an emotional Facebook post, she wrote: 'I am so broken that words can't explain. I can't believe I will not see your smile again.

'You made me the nurse that I am today, with your support, motivation and inspiration I am the nurse that I am today and I hope I can do you proud Areema.

'I love you so much and I will never forget you. You had so much to live for, I am sorry you didn't get to see your kids grow up and I'm sorry that you didn't get to complete your career.'




Ms Nasreen first became unwell around March 12, suffering with 'body aches', a high temperature which could not be brought down and a cough.

Her sister said: 'Her temperature would not go down and her cough was so bad it affected her lungs.'


On March 20, she was taken to hospital and tested positive for coronavirus before being treated in the health facility's intensive care unit.

if this is what heroism is all about, I'd rather be a coward.


Government should recompense all health workers with huge sum of money. There is nothing like heroism in professionalism.

They sit in chambers embezzling billions and paying health workers peanuts.
