Dr. Lorna has been described as a “hero” who died trying to save the world by her devastated father Dr. Philip Breen.

“She tried to do her job and it killed her.”

The 49-year-old New York late Dr. Lorna doctor was medical director of the emergency department at New York-Presbyterian Allen Hospital, before her death on Sunday.

Dr. Philip wants the world not forget his daughter as a “hero” when he told the New York Times: “Make sure she’s praised as a hero, because she was.

“She’s a casualty just as much as anyone else who has died.”

He said his daughter was “on the trenches” in the battle against the disease, and it had taken its toll.

According to Dr. Philip, his daughter had described the “onslaught” of patients who were dying even before they arrived in the emergency room.

There have been more than a million confirmed coronavirus cases in the US, with 56,521 deaths nationwide.

Of these, more than 17,000 deaths were recorded in New York.
