She tested positive for the infection when it was discovered that she had a slight fever at a maternal check, which she had regularly attended to after having lost her first child the previous year.
According to ITV News, Fozia & # 39; s husband, Wajid Ali said: & # 39; They said we will keep them here to find out & we will do a Covid test and have kept them for two days.
& # 39; The test came back positive and the next day they said it was mild and you can go home.
& # 39; After four days she was having difficulty breathing and we called the ambulance. & # 39;
Fozia could not receive visitors and could only make a few phone calls while she was in the & # 39; s maternity ward, with many of & # 39; e communication between doctors and their family, according to siblings.
Because of her condition, Fozia was unable to see her baby and only saw photos of him before she died.
& # 39; She was really happy, she got the puppet photo that she (the nurses) printed out for her, & # 39; said her husband of almost seven years, Mr. Ali.
& # 39; She held the photo and said & # 39; see it's our baby & # 39; and & # 39; we will come home soon & # 39; … this is the last time I spoke to them. & # 39;
Her sister, Sophia Hanif, said: "When the ambulance arrived, they did checks and everything was in order in terms of their blood pressure and sugar levels, but they still had to take them to the hospital for their baby. and the next two days, I think it was the second day she was in the hospital that she was born. & # 39;
After she was informed that she had developed a blood clot and was in a coma, her husband and father, Nabil, were allowed to wear personal protective equipment (PPE).

At one stage, the family was told that their condition was improving and they would be taken to recovery time.
Fozia's father said, & # 39; It gave us good hope, we were excited. They took her to recovery time, they gave her the phone, we actually talked to her.
& # 39; When & # 39; we walked into the hospital, when & # 39; they said they would shut down the machines, I said no, don't do it until we arrive, she's a fighter, she can get through – but when we walked in, we just kept praying. & # 39;
The baby tested negative for coronavirus but remains in the hospital.
Her seven-year-old husband, Wajid Ali, pictured, said: & # 39; She held the image and said & # 39; see it from baby & # 39; and & # 39; we will come home soon & # 39; … this is the last time I spoke to her. & # 39;
Her sister added: & # 39; She had no time at all.
& # 39; She asked for food, she asked about the baby, she asked about family and then suddenly … It was just a shock to all of us. & # 39;
The family was devastated by her death & # 39; song and grief, with her father Nabil who said, "But we have each other, love each other, support each other, siblings, grandchildren.
& # 39; She was a little superstar with us in our family. She was an inspiration to us all. & # 39;
