An 11-year-old girl tragically found her parents dead from coronavirus in their bed days after quarantining together in their basement.

Erika and Scott Greenman, from St Louis, Missouri, both in their 40s, had tested positive for coronavirus and were self-isolating when their daughter made the horrific discovery, neighbours say.

Friends of the family claim Erika was taken to hospital days before she died with Covid symptoms, but she was sent home to quarantine with Scott, who was also suffering from coronavirus at the time.

Police in St Louis confirmed their bodies were found on February 18.

Anna Nance Bulliner, believed to be Erika's sister, led tributes to the couple in a Facebook post.

She wrote: "Please pray for my family. We lost my baby sister and her husband today. Such a sad day!

"I'm gonna miss you soooo much. I love you!!"

Michael Nance wrote: "Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as we are mourning the loss of my Aunt Erika Nance Greenman and her husband Scott Greenman. Love while you can because life is so uncertain!"

Chuck Duy, a neighbour, described the Greenmans as kind and caring people.

"Last year at Christmas time they came down to our door and gave us cookies. They were just the nicest people. We are praying for the girl and their family," he told KSDK.

Erica Goodwin, a friend of the family, wrote: "It doesn’t make sense why your beautiful baby girl lost both of her loving parents, why one of my closest friends lost her dear sister, or why our Firm lost two exceptional employees and friends.

"Our hearts are broken. Rest In Peace dear friends."
