“She died from a very rare condition, which occurs among few women across the world, but it is very rare to be detected among African women.
Her blood platelet count fell below normal after childbirth,” Tedd Josiah told eDaily.
“Regina’s platelets, a component of blood whose function is to stop bleeding by clumping and clotting blood vessel injuries, were so diluted, leading to a significantly reduced count.
Sadly, all through she had an internal bleeding, which had not been detected, nor stopped, because of her low platelet count.’
