Young Doctor Who Died of COVID-19 Wore Same Mask for ‘Weeks if Not Months’

Dr. Adeline Fagan, a 28-year-old doctor from Syracuse who died after contracting COVID-19, wore the same mask for “weeks if not months” while treating coronavirus patients, The Guardian reports.

“Adeline had an N95 mask and had her name written on it,” Maureen Fagan, her sister, told the newspaper.

“Adeline wore the same N95 for weeks and weeks, if not months and months,” she added.

Fagan worked as a resident OB-GYN at HCA Houston Healthcare West in Texas, and her family believes that her time treating patients there in July led to her death. HCA West is a part of the hospital chain HCA Healthcare, which has come under fire from a national nurses union over alleged “willful violation” of workplace safety policies.

  1. Heartbreaking. We all should buy PPE for ourselves, until employers understand that lawsuits are way more expensive than masks.
    Also, a marker should not be used on the mask. Store it in a paper bag with the name, and if you must, write on the elastic band.

  2. She did not die from wearing the same mask. She died from wearing a mask longer than an hour like patients who are currently hospitalized because of wearing a mask. She died for the same reason David Kramer’s daughter became sick:

    “My daughter. 19 yrs old. Healthy. Frontline worker at a huge grocery store chain. Started feeling sick about two weeks ago. Side and back pain. Nausea.. Chest pain. Primary doc sent her for chest x-ray.. Something “lit up” on right side. Sent for MRI. Cat scan. Ultra sound of back and abdomen areas..NOTHING.. While at work was unable to breathe. Chest pain. Rushed to e.r. quarantined. Tested for covid. Young. By herself because no one can be with her. Turns out its pleurisy.. An inflection of the outside of the lining of the lungs. They basically tell her.. It’s because she has been wearing a mask for over 8 hours a day 5-6 days a week. Breathing in her own bacteria. Carbon dioxide.. Caused an infection. And now she is in severe pain. Has to be off work with no pay.. But you wont see that on social media! She’s 19. Healthy. And now is bed bound and struggling to breathe. Antibiotics. Steroids. Breathing treatments.”

    REMEMBER: CDC warns of wearing mask past 1-hour.!

    Hyproventilation is a primary cause of significant discomfort while wearing an N95 FFR (Williams 2010). However, studies done by Roberge et al. (2010) indicated that this hypoventilation did not pose a significant risk to healthcare workers over the course of less than one hour of continuous N95 use. When HCWs are working longer hours without a break while continuously wearing an N95 FFR, blood CO2 levels may increase past the 1-hour mark, which could have a significant physiological effect on the wearer (Lim et al., 2006)*. Some of the known physiological effects of increased concentrations of CO2 include:

    Increased pressure inside the skull;
    Nervous system changes (e.g., increased pain threshold, reduction in cognition – altered judgement, decreased situational awareness, difficulty coordinating sensory or cognitive, abilities and motor activity, decreased visual acuity, widespread activation of the sympathetic nervous system that can oppose the direct effects of CO2 on the heart and blood vessels);
    Increased breathing frequency;
    Increased “work of breathing”, which is result of breathing through a filter medium;
    Cardiovascular effects (e.g., diminished cardiac contractility, vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels);
    Reduced tolerance to lighter workloads.

    • If what you write has any truth, why was this young lady going around and transmitting her bacteria upon other people? Her father, instead of whining, should reflect on the lousy upbringing he gave her. When someone feels unwell, that person must stay home. There are people out there who are doing cancer treatments, who have received a transplant, or who simply are 100-yr-old, or frail, or preemie babies, and so on and so forth. A normal person. Gentile or Jew, would not want to be the cause of the demise of another human being, don’t you think? Should those people be forced to stay home so that someone can have the “freedom” to spread her bacteria and viruses upon the supermarket’s customers and even get paid for that?

      • Never believe anything from anyone other from the CDC and Health Departments – they’re the most trustworthy organizations in the world.

        • Was the post blaming masks for the young lady’s infection published by CDC, yes or no? Did the lady get the bacteria from wearing the mask, yes or no? If yes, she had the bacteria in her system already. People who are unwell need to show some consideration for other human beings and stay home.

    • Please ask Mr David Kramer for the full name and institutional affiliation of the MDs who supposedly said such asinine remarks, and the states where they’re licensed to practice.
      Unless they are Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, that is.

  3. The authorities in Israel gave the approval to the Belze Rebbe shlit”a for a huge crowd to join the prayers in his shul in Yerushalayim like every year for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur but he has to sign a document stating that they’ll all wear masks. The Rebbe told him, “If you show me proof that masks prevent from the virus, I will sign it.” They never came back with proof and the chassidim never wore masks and b”H nobody got this “virus”.

  4. There have been recent reports that masks causes Impetigo and pneumonia in children who have to wear masks all day in school. It is making children sick. Masks are becoming much worse than the virus.

  5. It seems likely that masks don’t really work. Otherwise, no doctors would get sick. Most wear their masks properly. Do doctors at least have a lower infection rate? People are wearing masks, using same ones over and over, adjusting them to breath and talk, constantly touching them, and not doing the main restrictions of distancing and washing because they think the mask will protect them.
