Schoolboy dies of stroke after catching Covid
A SCHOOLBOY died of a stroke after catching Covid just six days before another teen at the same school died with Covid as jabs were delayed.
Mohammed Habib was a year 10 pupil at St John Fisher Catholic College, in Newcastle-under-Lyme, when he was struck down with the virus.
The teenager, who had contracted the virus, passed away from a stroke on Sunday, October 24 and was buried two days later.
Now a medical examination has found Mohammed died from a bleed on the brain, a stroke, and from coronavirus.
A North Staffordshire Coroner’s Court spokesman said: “The coroner was provided with a cause of death which he was satisfied was natural and further investigations were not required. The cause of death was: 1a Cerebral oedema; 1b Stroke; 2: Covid-19.”
It comes as investigations are still continuing into exactly
what caused the death of fellow St John Fisher Catholic College pupil Harry Towers just six days later.
The year 11 pupil – who had also contracted coronavirus – died on
Saturday, October 30.
