Texas bride dies of coronavirus after failed wedding

A Texas girl died of a coronavirus five days after her wedding was called off.

Stephanie Lynn Smith was supposed to marry Jamie Bassett on November 13. The girl fell ill a few days before the wedding with what she thought was shingles, which she had had before.

The doctor prescribed Stephanie medication, but her condition continued to worsen. Her fiancé took her beloved to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a coronavirus infection and pneumonia. The patient spent her wedding day in the hospital.

Jamie Bassett received a call from the hospital Nov. 18 informing him of the girl’s death. Doctors said her heart had stopped four times. They tried to restart it with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but the last time her pulse failed to return.
