Angela Primachenko, a respiratory therapist from the Vancouver, Washington area, was 33 weeks pregnant when she fell ill on March 22. She initially thought it was allergies, but decided to get tested COVID-19.

When she was tested positive, Primachenko was admitted to a hospital, placed in the intensive care unit and hooked up to a ventilator.
