A Black doctor, after making a social media post complaining about being mistreated by hospital staff because she was Black, has died due to the coronavirus.

According to CBS News, Dr. Susan Moore, who died on December 20, died due to complications from COVID-19 at an Indiana hospital. She passed about two weeks after she posted the video on her Facebook page speaking on how she was being mistreated by hospital staff.

Moore, who was a physician in Indianapolis passed away last week at Indiana University Hospital North.

She had written about her experience on her Facebook post as well as giving a vocal account.

“Tested positive for COVID-19
“I had to beg to get the Remdesivir because Dr. Bannec said my chest x-ray was normal. I then had to beg for a CT of my chest which I finally got and it showed large mediastinal lymphadenopathy right lower lobe infiltrate in a new left lower lobe infiltrate.
“After receiving two infusions of the Remdesivir dr. Bannec said I don’t qualify, I’m not short of breath, he doesn’t know why my neck hurts and he doesn’t feel comfortable giving me any narcotics. All I can do is cry I was in so much pain. He said you can just go home right now. Of note he did not even listen to my lungs he didn’t touch me in any way. He performed no physical exam. I told him you cannot tell me how I feel.”

Dr. Carmen Brown posted about her situation on her Twitter account.
