Vaikom: A pregnant Keralite woman has died due to COVID-19 in Saudi Arabia.
Amritha Mohan, 31, was a staff nurse at the Sharourah General Hospital in Saudi Arabia. She is the wife of Avinash Mohandas, a native of Kudavechoor in Kottayam district.
After she got infected, Amritha was admitted to the King Khalid Hospital at Najran the other day. Amritha, who was seven-month pregnant with her first baby, died on Thursday morning.
Amritha had been working in Saudi for the past six years. She got married to Avinash four years ago. She had come home in February and returned on May 12.
The body is kept at the mortuary in Saudi. Avinash was not able to go to Saudi as he did not get the visa. Avinash said that Malayali Association members and friends at the hospital would conduct the funeral service.
Amritha is the daughter of (late) Mohandas and Kanakamma. She has a sister Akhila Mohan, who is in London.
