Woman, 90, Dies From Coronavirus in Belgium After Refusing A Ventilator And Telling Doctors: 'I Had A Good Life, Keep This For The Younger'

A 90-year-old coroanvirus patient has died in Belgium after selflessly refusing a ventilator and instructing doctors to 'keep this for the younger' patients. 

Suzanne Hoylaerts from Binkom, near Lubbeek, was hospitalised on March 20 when her condition rapidly deteriorated after contracting COVID-19. 

It comes amid a global shortage of ventilators during the coronavirus pandemic, a key piece of equipment in the battle against the respiratory disease.
