February 3 Recently, a young girl in the United States who has defeated cancer three times died after contracting the novel coronavirus.
Aspen Dick, a 17-year-old girl from Kansas City, Missouri, died on January 30 after struggling with the virus in November 2020, after being diagnosed with the novel coronavirus in November 2020.
Aspen suffers from a rare acute lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer that affects leukocytes. After being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 4, she has received four rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, defeating cancer three times.
After contracting COVID-19 in 2020, Aspen was admitted to the Children’s Charity Hospital and has been in the pediatric intensive care unit since the end of the year.
Aspen’s father said that the novel coronavirus is more terrible than cancer in some ways: “Cancer sounds terrible, but we also know it better.
Doctors have the ability to say how bad things are, what to do, and what to expect.
And here with COVID-19, everything is unknown.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that 267 children have died of COVID-19 in the United States since the outbreak.
