Two sisters die days apart from coronavirus

News

CHICAGO (WGN) — The sister of a retired Chicago nurse who died from COVID-19 has also died from the virus.

The Chicago Tribune reports 63-year-old Wanda Bailey of Crete died Wednesday of pneumonia due to COVID-19.

Bailey was 61-year-old Patricia Frieson’s sister — the retired South Side nurse was the first person to die of COVID-19 in the state last Monday.

Frieson’s family said she suffered from bad asthma and when she went to the hospital, they thought it was just her asthma acting up.

The sisters were part of a large, tight knit family including seven other siblings.
