Warsaw. Dies of pregnant women infected with COVID-19. The prosecutor’s office opened an investigation

A 38-year-old woman, eight months pregnant with confirmed COVID-19 infection, died in the Bielański Hospital. She wasn’t vaccinated. The baby was born thanks to a caesarean section. In connection with the death of the woman, the hospital notified the prosecutor’s office.

The case was described by “Gazeta Stołeczna”. At the beginning of November, a 38-year-old woman infected with COVID-19 was admitted to the Bielański Hospital. She was eight months pregnant. As the newspaper found out, it was initially in good condition, but at some point it deteriorated. The doctors decided to perform a caesarean section. The child was placed in an incubator, while the patient fought for her life under a respirator. She died after a few days.

– Due to medical confidentiality I cannot provide information, but I can confirm that, unfortunately, one of the pregnant patients who was admitted to our department due to COVID-19 disease, died despite intensive care – told “Stołeczna” prof. Katarzyna Kosińska-Kaczyńska, head of the Department of Pregnancy Pathology at the Bielański Hospital. The doctor noted that the patient had not been vaccinated.

Pregnant women are afraid of vaccinations

In July, we informed on tvn24.pl that vaccinations of pregnant women are recommended by the Polish Society of Gynecologists and Obstetricians, and also recommended by a national consultant in the field of perinatology. Placental IgG antibodies that cross the placenta are just one of the benefits. The vaccine protects against the severe course of COVID-19, to which pregnant women are more exposed than people of the same age group who are not pregnant.

However, pregnant women are often afraid of vaccinations. – Among my colleagues of gynecologists, I have not heard anyone advising against vaccinations. And I encountered that the women themselves refused. Some of them did not get vaccinated because they do not want to. It is the effect of anti-vaccine agents that is the main reason for the spread of the virus. It is the anti-vaccines who are the reason for the next wave and the fact that we will be dealing with the coronavirus for a long time, and such tragedies for entire families will occur. If there were 80 percent people vaccinated, we would not have 18 thousand. cases of new infections daily, of which 99%. These are unvaccinated people, an anonymous gynecologist from a hospital near Warsaw said in an interview with “Stołeczna”.

Prosecutor’s office investigation

In connection with the death of the woman, the Bielański Hospital notified the prosecutor’s office. – We have initiated an investigation into an act under article 155 of the Criminal Code (manslaughter – ed.). The proceedings are conducted by the District Prosecutor’s Office for Warszawa-Żoliborz. An autopsy was ordered in the case, which will most likely be carried out next week. Due to the preliminary nature of the case, as well as the welfare of the deceased person’s family, we do not provide more information – prosecutor Aleksandra Skrzyniarz, a spokeswoman for the District Prosecutor’s Office in Warsaw, told us. And she added: – The proceedings are being conducted in the case. It is at the initial stage of gathering evidence.
