An Argentinian college teacher, who said she struggled with coronavirus symptoms, collapsed during a Zoom call with her students, and died shortly afterwards, according to the Mail Online. The students asked De Simone to give her home address so they could call an ambulance, but she responded: "I can't".

She died on Wednesday in a hospital, according to reports by local media outlets. A video, allegedly depicting the call, emerged online, but was later deleted from social media platforms.
"It is very complicated. I have been here [with the virus] for more than four weeks and the symptoms do not go away... My husband is exhausted from working so much at the moment", Simone wrote back in June.
