In what will likely be recorded in the World data as another Covid-19 death, a 1-year-old boy in Saudi Arabia has died following a Covid-19 PCR test that went tragically wrong.
The child’s uncle and legal guardian, Mosaed al-Joufan, told Al Arabiya: “He did not suffer from any chronic or dangerous diseases. He complained Friday evening of a fever and we took him to Shaqra General Hospital with his mother.”
If you’ve ever seen the PCR tests performed, you’ll fully understand how this can happen, the swabs are pushed up your nose until it can go no further without resistance.
A tragic death, which was entirely unnecessary.
Tears – This is so sad. A one and a half year old Saudi child died due to a #coronavirus swab breaking inside his nasal cavity after medical staff at a hospital performed a #Covid19 test as he had a fever. https://t.co/8Nuut7FjG3— Amy Chew (@1AmyChew) July 15, 2020
