Yana Bautista, an Ateneo football recruit dies of coronavirus

A newly recruit for Ateneo women's football team passed away on Wednesday due to complications of COVID-19. She was 17.




Yana, is the youngest sister of former S80 Ateneo courtside reporter Martie Bautista who shared the sad news on her Facebook account.

"These past few months have been difficult for Yana. She was diagnosed with ADEM that was further complicated by COVID-19. Many challenges continued to surface where much of them left us extremely exhausted-- especially for my little sister," Martie wrote.

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is brief but widespread attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages the protective covering of the nerve fibers.

Several report had surfaced that Yana took a swab test on Saturday and resulted positive for COVID-19. She was then confined in the intensive care unit until she passed away.


"Yana had a lot of things planned out for this year. She had high hopes booting up for Ateneo as she was expecting to come in as a freshman this August. Yana was also thrilled planning for our future trips abroad as a family. Overall, we knew how exhilarated she was to learn how to drive as this September would mark her 18th birthday," her sister Martie recalled.

Yana is a graduate from Miriam High School where she played in the PFF Women's League 2019 for Nomads FC as a defender.


She was supposed to join Ateneo in the UAAP.

"I can’t believe your gone. We will surely miss you in our game, your passion, your dedication and your hardwork to win. We will no longer see your smile but please cheer with us from above! Thank you for sharing your talent in football with us ," her teammate Meldy Artagame posted a tribute video for Yana.
