College student with COVID-19 found dead in dorm room while quarantining – New York Post

Bethany Nesbitt, 20, was found in a residence hall at Grace College on Oct. 30, according to the Charlotte Observer.

“She was a loving and generous good friend, a source of consistent support to all those around her,” the household included.

The psychology major from Michigan, who had asthma, started experiencing signs on Oct. 20 and was rushed to an emergency clinic recently when her oxygen levels dropped, the outlet reported.

Her family is now advising others to stay mindful as COVID-19 cases rise.

The medical professional said Nesbitt appeared to be recuperating, so she returned to her dormitory to quarantine.

We advise you to follow health authorities safety measures and protocols. We had already canceled our family holiday plans prior to Bethany got sick. The threats of event in big groups arent worth it this year.”

” Bethany took care. She wore her mask. She socially distanced. We advise you to follow health officials protocols and preventative measures. We had actually currently canceled our family holiday plans prior to Bethany got ill. The threats of gathering in big groups arent worth it this year.”

” After a complete examination and autopsy, the cause of death has been ruled natural due to a lung embolus that had actually not been previously found,” Coroner Tony Ciriello said, according to the school.

Her main cause of death was ruled to be from a pulmonary embolism– a clog of an artery in the lungs– however a medical examiner said COVID-19 “played a function” in her passing.

An Indiana university student who was quarantining after testing favorable for the coronavirus was discovered dead in her dorm room, according to a report.

” Please dont assume that young people will not be impacted by this virus,” a statement from the Nesbitts read, according to the Charlotte Observer.

” While COVID did play a function in contributing to the death, it was not triggered by COVID.”
