A 12-year-old Ghanaian girl died from coronavirus after she was sent home by a doctor, reports said.

A girl named Rachel was sent to the hospital for treatment but she was sent back home with medication because her doctor thought was having an allergic reaction.

It was gathered that the doctor told Rachel’s mother who is originally from Ghana that “considering coronavirus as a possible cause was out of the question”. She was sent home with medication to treat fever.

But Rachel’s condition became worse when she went home. By the third day on Monday, she was struggling to breath normal.

The mother of the 12-year-old girl and other family members panicked and called the emergency centre for an ambulance, but due to language barrier and confusion, the operator could not understand the ‘confusing call’ before they hang up.

The operator called back 3 times but had no success. The police were sent to their residence for further inquiries but because the family had no car, a neighbour had driven them to the hospital.

“The emergency centre tried to call back three times but got no answer. The call, which came from Ghent, was reheard three or four times but remained unintelligible. The local police were sent on the spot, but by then, the child was already gone”, HLN reported.

Sadly, Rachel was pronounced dead at the hospital when they got there. Rachel from Ghana is now the youngest person to have died from COVID-19 in Belgium.
