    Covid: Woman’s cancer death ’caused by health service delays’

    The family of a 27-year-old woman ดาวน์โหลด slotxo who died from cancer believe she would still be alive today had it not been for delays caused by the pandemic.

    Latifah King, from Leicester, started suffering from severe leg pain in October but was told by doctors it was “bad sciatica” and given painkillers.

    She underwent hospital tests in December when her condition worsened.

    At the start of February she was diagnosed with epithelioid sarcoma and died seven days later.

    Her family claimed it was the lack of opportunity to see a doctor in person in October and November that delayed an accurate diagnosis.

    Her twin sister Shanika said: “They would say to you, ‘You need to wait for a doctor to call you back’.

    “Then it’s the doctor who’s calling you back who determines if you’re sick enough to be seen.

    “So when they’ve seen my sister’s records, they’ve said, ‘We’re not going to see you, we know you’ve got sciatica – here’s some codeine’.”

    The family said they experienced further delays when Ms King started having hospital tests after her condition worsened further.
