Narrating her ordeal through Women's Health Mag blog, Jasmine disclosed she is worried for her unborn babies and has been super stressed out to a point she feels like she is walking on eggshells.
''I am a 26-year-old nurse from Indianapolis, Indiana. I am married with two kids and have two more on the way. My youngest is 11 months old, and my oldest is 3. My twins (a boy and a girl) are due on June 10. Up until last month, I had my pregnancy plan in place. I continued to work my regular 12-hour shifts at the hospital until I physically couldn't anymore. And when the time came, I would deliver my twins vagin*lly, as I have done with my other kids. COVID-19 has literally impacted every aspect of my life: the physical, mental, and financial. It's hit me hard, and I hope that in sharing my story, other people will take the virus more seriously. This may sound naive, but before I tested positive, I actually wasn't worried that COVID-19 would get to me.''
The nurse revealed she tested positive for coronavirus on 22 March, although she had not had contact with any Covid-19 victim at the hospital where she works.
Jasmine added that she may have contracted the virus at the hospital because they were not provided with relevant protective gear while dealing with patients when the disease first broke out.
The nurse added that she got extra worried since she thought she had put her entire family at risk.
She wrapped up by urging people to take this disease seriously as it can affect anyone.
She also urged health workers, specifically those on the frontline to be extra careful to avoid infections.
