Alejandra died from COVID-19 after paramedics refused to treat her when they learnt that she was HIV-positive.

At midnight this Friday, the death of a transgender woman in the town of Santa Fe, in Bogotá, who was known as Alejandra, was reported. They reported that she was not treated in time by the emergency services, pointing out that the Paramedics in an ambulance refused to transfer her to a healthcare facility.

The Trans Community Network documented, through social networks, writing what happened to this woman, who worked as a sex worker in the city center, and explained that the doctors did not help her because she was a carrier of HIV-positiv.

"At 3 in the morning, Alejandra, a trans sex worker from the Santa Fe neighborhood, died after an ambulance refused to provide her medical service, after she told them that she was living with HIV. At this moment, her body is still in the room. She died drowned and without medical attention," they wrote on Twitter.
