A couple who were married for over four decades held hands as they died from coronavirus just seconds apart. William Stewart, 73, and wife Carol, 69, from New Hampshire in the US, were hospitalised with the virus after eight of their relatives tested positive.
They were both unvaccinated, according to the Mirror. They were both put on life support, Carol for two weeks and William for eight days, during which time he suffered from lung, kidney and renal failures due to complications of Covid-19.
Their heartbroken family were initially only able to see them remotely on video call, but were allowed to gather at their bedsides in protective suits as they took their final breaths.
