(WIVB)–A recent graduate from the U.B. School of Medicine has died, after a long fight with coronavirus.
Syracuse native Doctor Adeline Fagan began working at a hospital in Houston last year.It’s believed that’s where she contracted COVID-19.
Fagan was eventually put on a ventilator and a machine to oxygenate her blood and help her lungs can heal. She was making progress until she suffered complications Friday night.
Doctors tried to save her, but she did not survive the emergency surgery.
“Taking the necessary precautions so that your daughter isn’t Adeline, your friend isn’t Adeline. I would not wish this on anyone. This is devastating and terrible. And if you can wear your mask, and social distance. As much as you don’t like it and you might not be comfortable with it, it impedes your social life, it’s what needs to be done, and the sooner people do that, the sooner we can all get back to our normal lives,” said Maureen Fagan Adeline’s sister.
Fagan graduated from U.B. in 2019
