Kayla Williams, a mom of three, was suffering from coronavirus symptoms Friday when emergency crews were called to her home in south London, the Guardian reported.
Her husband, Fabian Williams, said he decided to call emergency dispatchers after she started experiencing a cough and high fever, as well as severe chest and stomach pains, the outlet reported.
“As I was talking to them she was getting worse and they told me to put her on the floor and to make her body flat,” Fabian said.
But when paramedics arrived, they refused to take her to the hospital and told her to nurse herself back to health, the report said.
“She told me the hospital won’t take her, she is not a priority,” Fabian told the outlet.
The next day, her husband said her health continued to deteriorate and he found her slumped over in the home.
“She was already dead,” he told the Guardian.
He reportedly called emergency dispatchers again but they were unable to revive his wife.
The London Ambulance Service confirmed that they treated a patient at Williams’ home and initially urged them to look after themselves.
“Our clinicians treated a patient and advised them to call back if their condition changed,” the agency said.
The agency continued saying, “Our sympathy is with the family at this time. We are working incredibly hard in these unprecedented times to look after Londoners.”
