Overcoming COVID-19 is on everyone’s mind. When will things go back to normal? How could this have happened? What can we do to prevent future outbreaks from occurring? This is the first time since the 1918 Spanish Flu that the U.S. has experienced a pandemic of this proportion. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many other countries around the world. You may recall the Ebola outbreak of 2014 in West Africa.  The stories of schools being shut down, not being able to be with loved ones that were sick, the isolation required to prevent the spread all ring true to what we are experiencing today.

When 35-year-old Maimuna was 37 weeks pregnant, she went into labor at her home in Monguno, in northeastern Nigeria, where she was living in a camp for internally displaced persons.

This wasn’t her first time giving birth, but this time she experienced complications. By the time her neighbors brought her to the Mother and Child Health center (MCH), she had already lost a lot of blood. Doctors had to perform an emergency cesarean section to save her life, since she had already lost her unborn child. As she was rushed into the operating theater, Maimuna was in urgent need of a blood transfusion.
