Their sister Zoe Davis told the BBC: “They always said they had come into the world together and would go out together as well.

Zoe said the “amazing” pair, who lived together, had other health conditions and had been unwell for some time.

The two sisters, who both suffered from an underlying health condition, have been praised for their excellent work in the nursing profession.

A spokesman for University Hospital Southampton (UHS) said that Katy had worked as risk and patient safety lead in child health, though had been unwell for a period prior to her admittance to hospital when she tested positive for Covid-19.

Emma had also worked for UHS for nine years as a nurse in surgery in the colorectal unit until 2013, he added.

The spokesman said: “She had the same underlying health condition as Katy and had been unwell prior to her admission when she tested positive for Covid-19.

“She sadly also passed away last night and it goes without saying just how devastating and tragic this is for the family and all who knew them.
