Coronavirus heartbreak as brave NHS nurse dies: – ‘You were an angel… night mummy’ | UK | News

Aimee O’Rourke, a mother-of-three, died on Thursday at the QEQM Hospital in Margate after testing positive for coronavirus. The nurse has been described as an “amazing mum” and “one in a million” and sadly passed away after fighting the virus for several weeks. It is understood Ms O’Rourke developed the symptoms of COVID-19 two weeks ago, before her condition deteriorated and she was taken to intensive care and put on a ventilator.

Her daughter Meghan wrote on Facebook: “Look at all the lives you looked after and all the families you comforted when patients passed away,” she wrote.

“You are an angel and you will wear your NHS crown forever more because you earned that crown the very first day you started.

“Your Meggy misses you beyond belief. One day when I have children of my own I will tell your grandchildren about their GG (glamorous gran) which you wanted to be called, every single day.

“I could go on all day long and have so many things to say but I have to be strong.

“Night night mummy.”
