Woman loses both her parents to Covid who died from virus just two weeks apart

A woman has lost both her parents to Covid-19 after they died from the virus just two weeks apart.

Ray Scovell, 76, from Sandown, Isle of Wight, was admitted to hospital after becoming ill on January 8 and passed away slightly over a week before his 73-year-old wife, Rosemary, suffered a fall and also ended up in hospital.

She tested positive for coronavirus with x-rays showing inflammation on her lungs and died five days afterwards.

Now Claire Apsey, the couple’s daughter, has told of her ‘guilt’ over not being able to give her father a proper funeral.

She told the BBC: ‘When we had my dad’s funeral, I felt so guilty there were only 30 people there.

‘It felt so wrong because my dad was so well known. We were inundated with cards and flowers.’ 

Ms Scovell had recently suffered from short-term memory loss, resulting in her daughter moving in to take care of her after Mr Scovell was admitted to hospital. 

Ms Apsey added: ‘While Dad was in hospital, we were having to explain it to her, which is hard because she kept forgetting, and when Dad died she would forget so we would have to explain again.’

She said that her mother died very suddenly after having a pulmonary embolism.

The couple, who Ms Apsey said were always thinking of helping others, were set to mark their golden wedding anniversary shortly before they passed away.

Ms Apsey added that her father, who worked as a hammer coach at the Isle of Wight Athletics Club, urged children to go running and would go out shopping for elderly neighbours during lockdown.

She was able to visit him in hospital before his death but had to wear PPE and a face shield, saying it wasn’t the ending she had wished for.
